Dec 2015 - Reviewer : Monica Larner - The 2014 Sicilia Menfi Chardonnay takes Sicilian white wine to a whole new level. The Planeta family has been tinkering with this wine for a number of years and has gradually lessened the overall oak impact. That change is evident here and the grapes have benefitted from the excellent 2014 growing season. This was one of the best vintages in recent memory on the Mediterranean island. The bouquet offers balanced spice and ripe fruit with soothing creaminess and big intensity. I'm going to suggest a long drinking window for a wine of this high quality.
