Descrizione vino

This wine testifies the renovation of Sicily and the will to build a healthy competition in the production of this noble wine variety. Its history began in 1985, but today Chardonnay Planeta truly represents its island. The grapes come from unique the unique vineyards of Ulmo and Maroccoli. The fermentation and the aging in French wood give us a graceful a powerful wine. The soft pressing and the elimination of stalks is followed by static decanting. Its fermentation is managed at 18°C in barriques. 10 months aging with batonnage every 10 days. 50% of the barrels is new, while the other half is of 2nd and 3rd passage.
