This stunning wine certainly puts Planeta in the running for one of the best Chardonnays made in Italy. It is tirelessly creamy and rich, with an abundant bouquet expressed with apricot, honey, star jasmine, crushed rock and sweet Sicilian almond. From a cool vintage, the aromas are fine and pinpoint in their intensity, unfolding like a long story told chapter by chapter. The big takeaway here is the Mediterranean, purely Sicilian character of this wine. It is generous, embracing, noble and strong. I enthusiastically recommend this bottle to lovers of age-worthy Chardonnay.

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has a long history of wine production dating back to ancient times. The island's warm climate and volcanic soil provide ideal conditions for growing a variety of grapes, including Nero d'Avola, Grillo, and Catarratto.

Sicilian wines are known for their bold, full-bodied flavors and high alcohol content. Red wines from the region are particularly popular, with Nero d'Avola being the most widely planted grape variety. These wines are characterized by their dark fruit flavors, such as black cherry and plum, and often have a spicy finish.

White wines from Sicily are also gaining popularity, with Grillo being the most commonly used grape variety. These wines are known for their crisp acidity and citrus flavors, such as lemon and grapefruit.

In addition to wine, Sicily is also known for its production of Marsala, a fortified wine made from a blend of white grapes. This wine is aged for a minimum of one year and has a rich, caramel-like flavor.

Overall, Sicily is a region with a rich history of wine production and a diverse range of styles to offer. Its wines are gaining recognition on the international stage and are definitely worth exploring.
