Planeta Chardonnay 2010

Planeta Chardonnay 750ML 2010   
Sku: 8840

Planeta’s first winery, Ulmo, together with an old family farmhouse, is situated on the banks of the Arancio Lake in the eastern portion of Sicily. The soil here is deep and chalky - perfect for the production of Planeta’s great white wines: Chardonnay and Cometa.

Tasting notes
Color - Golden yellow with lively green glints. Bouquet - Rich and intense. Aromas of peach, golden apple, white figs, vanilla cream, and meringue mingle with overtones of hazelnut and honey. The wood is shy but well balanced. Taste - Soft, round and concentrated on the palate; the fruit flavors are wonderfully balanced by a powerful streak of acidity and rich mineral character.

Technical notes
100% Chardonnay

Food pairing
An outstanding match for ravioli with fish and lemon sauce, handmade pasta with truffles, and grilled meats. After some years of bottle aging, enjoyable with mature cheeses.
