This wine arrived from the wish for success in competing with the world in the production of this noble and widespread grape. Following a long process beginning in 1985, full of surprises and successes, today the Planeta Chardonnay is an icon for the whole of Sicily. The vines of the Ulmo and Maroccoli vineyards, from which it is produced, are unique for their aspect and terroir. The fermentation and aging in French wood, carefully and precisely judged, delivers a wine unique for its grace and power. Single-variety Chardonnay whose characteristics have made it so famous which emerge very clearly.
Colour: Starting from the richness of its deep clear golden but transparent colour one imagines the pleasing contrast of creaminess and crispness in the taste.
Bouquet: Of ripe yellow peaches, acacia honey and marzipan and with some peaty, cereal and toasted aromas which precede the powerful balanced finish.
Taste: It is indeed a soft white wine under laid by a refreshing acid vein which accompanies each mouthful. Round and nutty, reminiscent of chestnuts with a slight mineral suggestion.
Ready for consumption, but will continue to develop in the large bottle.
