Planeta’s Chardonnay is a beautiful interpretation of one of the noblest white grape varieties, which has become an icon for the whole of Sicily. After years of studying the territory, two particularly suitable vineyards have been identified, with pebbly and loamy soils, which have produced wines of great structure. Aged in French woods, in a Burgundian style yet with an all-Italian personality, this great white will splendidly evolve in the coming years.

This Chardonnay of Sicily has a brilliant, intense and crystalline gold color. At the nose it reveals a wide range of floral aromas: jasmine, orange blossom and frangipane that then leave room to the yellow fruits, Mirabelle plums, clingstone peaches, pineapple, almond paste, and in the end butter and a slight sensation of roasting. In the mouth it is a fat, opulent and enveloping wine, both its fruity hints and butterness come back to the palate, backed by a nice acid boost and a mineral sip.
