Planeta Chardonnay 2022
Planeta Chardonnay 2022
93 Points James Suckling (2021) - The Planeta Chardonnay has become the illustration of the changes in Sicilian wine. It was created from a wish to compete in the world production of this noble and widespread variety. After a long process beginning in 1985, today Planeta’s Chardonnay is an icon for the whole of Sicily. A rich light gold colour, deep but transparent, the pleasing contrast of creaminess and crunchiness. A soft white wine supported by a refreshing note of acidity, with a slight mineral touch which 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 single-variety Chardonnay which clearly demonstrates the characteristics which have made it so well known. 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.
About the Producer
In the middle of the 1980’s Planeta planted their first vines around the 16th century farmhouse which the family has always owned; a beautiful place full of memories which they wanted to provide with a new future. The first winery was built in 1995 on the banks of the Lake Arancio and its nearby woods, in really delightful countryside. Now, Planeta is an iconic winery producing magnificent wines both from local Sicilian varieties and more internationally known grapes.
