Planeta Chardonnay 2018

Single-variety Chardonnay whose characteristics which have made it so famous which here emerge very clearly Starting from the richness of its deep clear golden but transparent colour one imagines the pleasing contrast of creaminess and crispness in the taste It is indeed a soft white wine underlaid by a refreshing acid vein which accompanies each mouthful A slight mineral suggestion combines harmoniously with the flavour of ripe yellow peaches, acacia honey and marzipan and with some peaty, c

The Planeta Chardonnay born in the vineyards Ulmo and Maroccoli, located in the municipality of Sambuca di Sicilia, in the province of Agrigento. It is produced exclusively with Chardonnay grapes, harvested and selected entirely by hand. After de-stemming and soft pressing, is carried out a temperature-controlled fermentation in barriques. Then the wine is aged in barrels for 12 months before being bottled. This Chardonnay is characterized by a golden yellow color, with green highlights. The nose opens up rich and intense, with notes of apricot, peach, Golden apple and fig trees, enriched by pleasant notes of honey and pistachios. The palate is rich, pleasantly creamy and smooth, with a fresh acidity. Perfect for accompanying dishes of fish and shellfish, it is ideal in combination with white meats and soups.

A wine that has become the very image of the change of Sicilian wine. Born from the vision of the world to compete with the production of this grape so noble and common. A long road that began in 1985, full of surprises and successes. Chardonnay Planeta is now an icon for the whole of Sicily. The vineyards of Ulmo Maroccolo and its component are unique in location and terroir. The fermentation and aging in French woods, careful and accurate for years, gives us an extraordinary wine for grace and power.

- Golden yellow with greenish hue. On the nose it comes across very intense, with citrus fruit flavours, chestnut, honey and a spicy complexity.
- Rich, ripe, and bursting with tropical fruit that springboards onto the tongue with a healthy lashing of oak.
- Colour: Golden yellow with a bright, greenish hue.
- Nose: Very intense, fruity bouquet with citrus, lime and peachy notes, lightly balsamic with hints of mint and sage, nutty tones and orange blossom.
- Palate: Dry and elegant with a good balance of fresh acidity and a supple, aromatic persistance, very well integrated, complex oak characters add depth to this beautifuly well crafted wine.
- Drinks very well on release but will mature for 6 to 8 years.
- Richly flavoured, fleshy fish, mushroom and truffle risotto and medium bodied, hard cheeses.

A Sicily that goes well with baked fish. All of my friends were delighted about this wine.
Yellow, with golden hints. It smells of lemon and apple. Stays a quite a few time in the mouth.
