chardonnay i.g.t. 75 cl
The wine which has become an image of the change in Sicilian wine. It arrived from the wish for success in competing with the world in the production of this noble and widespread grape. Following a long process beginning in 1985, full of surprises and successes, today the Planeta Chardonnay is an icon for the whole of Sicily. The vines of Ulmo and Maroccoli, from which it is produced, are unique for their aspect and terroir. The fermentation and ageing in French wood, carefully and precisely judged, delivers a wine unique for its grace and power.
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, cereal and toasted aromas which precede the powerful balanced finish.
