External Reviews for Planeta Fiano Sicilia IGT Cometa
Cometa 2011 - 92 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Among the greatest expressions of Fiano, Cometa is a full and generous effort, with deep layers of passion fruit and stone fruit, plus touches of vanilla, honey and light spice. The concentration and freshness is wonderful, and the wine would pair well with steamed lobsters or buttery crab legs.
Cometa 2006/ Exhibits a complex nose, with rich, exotic fruit-star fruit, papaya- and some honey and fresh herb character. Full-bodied, with a silky mouthfeel covering an intense, thin bead of citrus fruits. Exotic and fresh.
Cometa 2010 - 90 points, Wine Advocate/ …wraps around the palate with juicy peaches, apricots, flowers and spices … Expressive tropical notes add volume and an attractive lushness on the expressive finish.
Planeta 2013 Cometa - 92 Pts - Wine Enthusiast/ Intense aromas of white peach, tropical fruit and Mediterranean herb lead the nose and follow through to the round palate alongside a mineral note. The juicy fruit is brightened and balanced by refreshing acidity.
Sizzling Sicily/ Intense aromas of Meyer lemon, Bosc pear, pineapple and vanilla. Medium-full with excellent concentration. Rich finish with good fruit persistence, balanced acidity and spicy oak. Enjoy with richly flavored seafood over the next two to three years.
Cometa 2010 - 92 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Cometa is an irresistible white wine from the deep south of Italy. It speaks its own Sicilian language but with modern, international accents. Made from Fiano grapes, it opens with a beautiful golden color, and delivers rich aromas of stone fruit, vanilla cream and rose. The mouthfeel is exceedingly soft, creamy and long-lasting.
/ A very nicely balanced and well made wine crafted from Fiano, this shows notable body and depth of flavor, with ripe peach notes in the forefront, and yet there's enough balancing acidity to keep the wine seeming fresh and taut. Medium-bodied, it will work well with all sorts of fish or chicken dishes.
