Golden yellow in colour, the bouquet is rich and intense, characterised by scents of peach, apple, vanilla cream and hazelnut. Full, smooth and creamy on the palate. Well balanced by a certain acidity, it is distinguished by a fresher note that accompanies it to an impeccably clean and persistent finish.
Served with all courses of a meal, Planeta's Chardonnay is a white wine which pairs well with a board of excellent prosciutto, risottos and white meats. Also at the end of a meal, with a board of blue cheeses.
Menfi Chardonnay DOC 2016 Magnum - Planeta: Why we like it
A legendary wine, born from the vision of being able to compete with the world in the production of this noble and popular grape variety, Planeta's Chardonnay has become the image of the change in the Sicilian winemaking sector. A long road embarked upon in 1985, full of surprises and success. After fermentation, and ageing in French oak barriques, it is a wine which is as elegant as it is potent, a great companion for food and also capable of ageing at length in the bottle if properly stored in the cellar.
