Planeta Chardonnay

Sicilia Menfi D.O.C.

100% Chardonnay


A wine which has become the illustration of changes in Sicilian wine.

 It was created from a wish to compete in the world production of this noble and widespread vine. 

After a long process beginning in 1985, full of surprises and successes,

today Planeta’s Chardonnay is an icon for the whole of Sicily.

 The vines of Ulmo and Maroccoli, from which it is made,

are unique for position and terroir.

 Fermentation and aging in French wood, with precision and care,

present us with a wine unique for its grace and power.


 Tasting notes :

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.


 Vinification :

After destalking, soft pressing and static sedimentation at a low temperature,

fermentation in barrique at 18⁰C, maturation of 11 months with bâtonnage carried out every 10 days.
