A wine that has become the very image of the change of Sicilian wine. Born from the vision of the world to compete with the production of this grape so noble and common. A long road that began in 1985, full of surprises and successes. Chardonnay Planeta is now an icon for the whole of Sicily. The vineyards of Ulmo Maroccolo and its component are unique in location and terroir. The fermentation and aging in French woods, careful and accurate for years, gives us an extraordinary wine for grace and power.

Climate In late autumn and winter rains have occurred slightly below the standard and the average seasonal temperatures. Spring showed abundant rains never read in the last, the end of April, was decisive for the quality. The grapes have benefited from a cool, dry climate that together until the harvest, without excess heat and temperatures ideal for ripening. The grapes are so healthy and had no need of pest management interventions. The result is a superb vintage, with peaks of absolute excellence for native varieties.
