2016 Planeta Cometa
- Critic Rating
The 2016 Planeta Cometa is a white wine produced in Sicily by the family estate Planeta. The project is relatively recent, as they planted the first vineyards in Ulmo in 1985, however the family has an agricultural heritage spanning seventeen generations.
Cometa’s project is made from Fiano grape variety, originally from the region of Campania but very popular in Sicily. Planeta’s plan was to create a wine from southern Italian grapes, able to compare with the world’s great whites. The result was a wine with intense and fruity aromas, great structure and minerals.
The 2016 Planeta Cometa unveils citrus, white fruit and a very peculiar apricot note, alongside cream and green herbs’ hints. It is particularly interesting if enjoyed with fish, seafood and sushi, but also with soft cheese. It’s indicated for a classy refreshment during a hot summer’s day.
“This straw yellow wine from the South of Italy is 100% Fiano Sicilia DOC and will get stuck in your head because of its minerality and structure. It has an intense and complex bouquet with aromas of tropical fruits, apricot, thyme and hay. Persistent and elegant with good acidity.” – Veronica Accossato, AIS Turin Sommelier
