Planeta planted their first vines at Menfi and their most representative wines, including the Planeta Chardonnay, are produced here. This wine has become an image of the change in Sicilian wine. It arrived from a desire to compete 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 aging in French wood, carefully and precisely judged, delivers a wine unique for its grace and power. The characteristics which have made Planeta's single-variety Chardonnay so famous emerge very clearly. 

Tasting Notes

Deep clear golden but transparent colour. Rich and intense. Aromas of peach, golden apple, white figs, vanilla cream, meringue. Hints of hazelnut and hints of orange blossom honey. It is indeed a soft white wine underlaid by a refreshing acid vein which accompanies each mouthful.

Food Pairing

For a change, try it with some just seared foie gras or with roast veal and mushroom sauce.
