Planeta is a Sicilian wine company established in 1995. Planeta is not one but six ways of articulating the land in six different contexts. Such is the number of estates which produce their wine; boutique wineries each seeking, through careful research, to celebrate its locality. Ulmo at Sambuca di Sicilia (AG), Dispensa at Menfi (AG), Dorilli at Vittoria (RG), Buonivini at Noto (SR), Sciara Nuova on Etna at Castiglione di Sicilia (CT) and finally La Baronia at Capo Milazzo (ME) are the Planeta locations, a total surface area of vineyard of 364 hectares.
Planeta - Chardonnay
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay
APPELLATION: Sicilia Menfi D.O.C.
WINE DESCRIPTION: 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 a soft white wine underlaid by a refreshing acid vein that 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.
FOOD PAIRING: A good match for smoked fish and meat, and after a few years’ maturation, also with herbed cheeses.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14% vol
Volume: 0.75 L
