Planeta Chardonnay 2020
Vineyard: 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 aging in French wood, carefully and precisely judged, delivers a wine unique for its grace and power.
Vinification: “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 Maturation: in Allier oak barriques of 225 litres, 50% new and 50% 2nd and 3rd use. ”
A rich, golden Chardonnay that bundles yellow peaches, acacia honey and a touch of marzipan into a net of fine-thread acidity, then hits you with a homely waft of toast.
For a change, try it with some just seared foie gras or with roast veal and mushroom sauce.
