Planeta Chardonnay Sicilia IGT 2006
Beautifull yellow with gold and green shades. It offers an intense, complex and fine aroma, with a pleasant delicate note of toasted vanilla. Structured and Balanced, this wine is a great companion for mushroom based sauces.
Golden yellow in the glass, exceptionally strong colour for a white. The nose is giving sweet aromas of apples, caramel and honey, a really polished nose. The palate is outstanding, really creamy with hints of citrus fruits, very little oak. I really recommend this Chardonnay very highly possibly the best Chardonnay currently produced in Italy.
External Reviews for Planeta Chardonnay Sicilia IGT
Wine Enthusiast ReviewThis vintage of Planeta's celebrated Chardonnay is full-bodied and lush, with notes of peach, yellow rose, vanilla and honey, framed by toasted hazelnuts. The wine delivers a creamy, almost chewy mouthfeel with power and intensity, and continues with a long, soft finish.Wine Tasting NotesGolden yellow with bright greenish hues. Rich, intense, fruity. Peach mousse, black figs, rose and vanilla cream. Overtones of hazelnut with a hint of orange blossom honey. The wood is delicate and hidden beneath the fruit fragrances. Soft, strong, extremely warm. Its wonderful balance is held by a powerful streak of acidity. Perfect for cheese ravioli, fish soup and vegetable risotto.
