Planeta, Chardonnay, Menfi, Sicily, Italy, 2015
Platinum: Best Southern Italian White
Sunshine pours out of this one! It's brash, bold and buttery with complexity and attitude to burn. Has what it takes: butterscotch, cedar, toast, honey, pineapple, tangerine, baking spice, neatly integrated oak, and squeaky acidity, which reigns in the opulence. A very consumer friendly style.
