La Planeta Mamertino is made from of 60% Nero d´Avola and 40% Nocera grapes, with an aging in big oak barrels for 12 months. Mamertino is a denomination rooted in antiquity dating back to 289 B. C. when the Mamertini tribe from Campania produced such wine, described by Pliny and beloved by Julius Caesar.The winery is located at Capo Milazzo, and the grapes come from the small vineyard La Baronia.
The wine has an intense ruby colour, with dark violet reflexes. On the nose there are intensive notes of mediterranian maquis, red fruits and jammy berries. On the palate the wine is fruity, with thick but refined tannins, well integrated with the oak. Long aftertaste.
