Cometa, Planeta

New

A great white wine from southern Italian grapes which can be compared with the most important white wines of the world; this was the initial intention. During the 1990’s this was the aim of our experiments with Fiano, a noble and ancient variety originating in Campania.Thus Cometa was born, expressing the characteristics of this extraordinary grape in an original and unique way. Intense and flowery perfumes, a great structure but at the same time with minerals which today forms one of the most important white wines of southern Italy

Tasting notes

A single-variety Fiano from limechalk soils which contribute to the enhancement of the aromatic markers of Mediterranean macchia owned by this vine. Thus, between broom flowers and thyme, the delicate aromas of chamomile, hay and mandarin can also be savoured. A mineral palate with vibrantly savoury traces which quiver and quench. Then the rhythm changes to become slower and more harmonious, an invitation to sip this outstanding white wine with the correct quietude enjoying its every change of tone. The finish presents a silky tactile sensation with a refined aftertaste of ripe apricot, of almond flowers and basil flowers

Matching

With no fear of being banal, with some freshly caught and grilled snapper
