Chardonnay Planeta, a great white wine from Sicily.

The king of Burgundy grapes, Chardonnay is at its best in Italy's southernmost wine-growing region: Sicily. Produced at the Ulmo estate in Menfi on the island's south-west coast, this Italian white wine has been around since 1994. A symbol of change in Sicilian viticulture, it was born of the Planeta estate's desire to produce a great white wine from an international grape variety. It is now a benchmark and one of Sicily's finest white wines.

Planeta, a renowned producer.

With centuries of experience in Sicily, the family now at the head of the estate has been making wine since the mid-1980s. The first vines were planted in 1985 in the Menfi area near the fortress of Ulmo. Today, with five estates spread across the island, Planeta is one of the island's most renowned producers.

For lovers of elegant, aromatic Sicilian white wines.

A gastronomic wine par excellence, Planeta Chardonnay is the ideal white wine to accompany dishes based on fish in sauce or poultry. This white wine has notes of citrus fruit and toasted brioche on the nose, and a balanced structure. This Chardonnay is round on the palate, with notes of white-fleshed fruit and a hint of butter. The acidity provided by the limestone in the soil gives the necessary balance, making this Italian white wine from Sicily a must-have in your cellar.
