Planeta Chardonnay 2011

Planeta Chardonnay 750ml 2011     
Sku: 15052

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (May 2014)
Executed in an opulent and international style, the 2011 Chardonnay is a landmark Sicilian white. Starting with the 2012 vintage, it will carry the ?Sicilia DOC? appellation. You feel the warm Sicilian sunshine in the thick texture of the wine as well as the aromas of ripe peach, lemon drop candy and toasted almond. It offers a beautiful smoky aftertaste with elegant touches of chopped herb, honey and sage. Drink 2015-2020.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; the juice is clarified through cold settling overnight and then inoculated wit selected yeast. Fermented and aged in 225-liter French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% one-year-old. The wine is aged for 10 months in barrel before bottling and release.

Technical notes
14% abv

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.
