The global demand and consumption for wine has continued to grow, and in the past decade alone, the numbers have doubled. Wine is no longer just an object for enjoyment; it is a lifestyle, it is a way of life, it is even a reflection of who you are. At GP BRANDS, we have carved a niche for ourselves and distinguished ourselves as the top stockists of quality wine, from far and wide. We are meticulous and deliberate when picking our wine brands. Some of our most popular brands include Sicilian brands, brands that are not just ideal for making you mellow, but also for pairing foods.
Plumbago Nero d’Avola, Planeta; this awesome Sicilian brand comes in a bold, authoritative bottle, a stylish way to contain the soft, sweet wine it holds. Like any wine lover will attest, Nero d’Avola grapes are renowned globally for their sweetness, and ability to make great wine. In fact, these grapes are indigenous and unique to Sicily, Italy; their taste, aroma, cannot be replicated in any other type of grapes. This wine is popular, thanks to its blended scents of cocoa, ripe blackberry, and scaher cake, all combined into one! If you are looking for a wine that will thrill your soul, and make your mind mellow without a strong alcoholic taste in your mouth, then Plumbago Nero d’Avola Planeta is the way to go. In regards to food matching, you can pair the wine with any Mediterranean cuisine, from vegetables to any type of meat.
Passito di Noto, Planeta; this is another vintage Sicilian brand that we are glad to introduce to you! The bottle itself has a lively and attractive bottle, with a natural cork. The wine is succulent and fresh to the nose; its grapey and floral aromas will awaken all your senses. The secret to making great wine is to balance between the sweetness, and acidity or crispness of the drink; this is exactly what Passito di Noto Planeta has done. It has a sweet taste that fills your mouth, and it’s only when you’re swallowing it that you’ll discern a tinge of its alcoholic composition. It is a particularly ideal brand for anyone who wants to sit over a good book, with a balanced wine by their side or a guitar as you sing out your soul.
This is the perfect wine for pairing with desserts, especially those that have a sour note as a result of containing some dried fruits. Italians use the wine to accompany some of their traditional foods like Cassata al forno, gelatin di agrumi, or even pasticceria monacale.
At GPBRANDS, we pride ourselves in ensuring that all our Sicilian wine brands meet the standards of good, high quality wine. These two brands mentioned above are just a fraction of what we have; we have a huge collection of popular Italian wines. You can either order a bottle singularly, or as a whole case.
