Winemaker's Notes:

Planeta is now a world famous Italain producer. Planeta wines represent a journey through the whole of Sicily with vineyards dotted across the island from east to west. The Planeta Chardonnay has become the image illustrating the changes taking place in Sicilian wines. It was born from a dream of competing with the world in the production of this noble and widespread grape variety. A long progress begun in 1985 which has been full of surprise and success. Today Planeta’s Chardonnay is an icon for the whole of Sicily. The vines of Ulmo and Maroccoli which create it are unique in their location and terroir.Its fermentation and maturing in French barrels, which by now has been carefully planned for years, delivers an extraordinarily graceful, powerful wine. This wine is golden yellow with lively green glints. Rich and intense, this has aromas of peach, golden apple, white figs, vanilla cream, meringue. Hints of hazelnut and Zagara Honey complement shy by well balanced wood. Soft, round, energetic, full, its balance is characterized by a fine acidity, the fresh flavour and substantial extract. Perfect with air-dried ham, such as prosciutto but also ideal with all kind of risotto and white meat. After a few years of maturation this could also be served with herby cheese.
