From the rich light gold colour, deep but transparent, the pleasing contrast of creaminess and crunchiness which is evident on tasting can be anticipated. It is indeed a soft white wine supported by a refreshing note of acidity which accompanies every sip. A slight mineral touch harmoniously combines the flavour of ripe yellow peaches, acacia honey and marzipan with peaty, cereal and toasted aromas which appear at the powerful and balanced finish.

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.

Planeta is the story of a journey through time and space, through Sicily from west to east, and through the five areas where today we produce their wines, olive oils and the places of our family hospitality. A long journey which was chosen in order to protect the uniqueness of the environment, the countryside and the culture with the same respect with which to explore the characteristics of the terroirs and the vineyards, enhancing the specific details of each area.
