Discover More About Our Products

Planeta is a Sicilian winery with strong ties to its territory and an ambassador for this unique island. The winery's history is well explained by Diego Planeta, who sees his winery as a journey through space and time through wines that, thanks to the territory, the climate and the men who produce them, have different styles and characters and represent the different nuances of Sicily. Also fascinating is the tourist proposal to travel in the most enchanting territories of the island through the "wine resorts" Planeta.

One of the five territories where Planeta resides is Menfi, in the south-west of Sicily. From this enchanting site comes the Chardonnay Planeta Sicily Menfi 2018. This wine represents a real step forward for Planeta, as it is made with only Chardonnay, a very common but equally noble grape variety. In the splendid vineyards of Ulmi and Maroccoli, characterised by particularly ideal soil, the vine reaches the height of its potential.

This is an exceptionally pure Chardonnay, which is already evident from its wonderful golden colour with excellent transparency and soft fragrance, with a refreshing touch of pleasant acidity. In the mouth, it is velvety and with flavours of peaches, acacia honey and almond paste that recall its land.

Jag testade med mina klienter från Menfi.
Typisk färg på vit. De vita blommornas arom dominerar över resten. Jag jämförde detta 2018 med de föregående men mäkte ingenting.
Ett tapasvin som vi tog med några grillspett.

Golden yellow with greenish hue. On the nose it comes across a very intense, with citrus fruit flavours, chestnut, honey and a spicy complexity.

A 2014 is perfect with boiled shrimp. I have a friend in Sicily, he recommended it to me.
Its colour is very dense. Over all, the Planeta Chardonnay reminded me of white flowers. Salty touch, like the sea, cool.

Intense colour at sight. In my opinion, the Planeta Chardonnay Sicilia smelled like mango, banana and pear. Flavours are well balanced.
We had it with a pizza.
This time I shared it with two couples .
