Planeta Cometa 2017

The Planeta Cometa Sicilia Menfi D.O.C. is a white wine made from 100% Fiano grapes grown in the Menfi region of Sicily. Deep straw yellow in colour this wine is intense and full of character, with integrated aromatic notes of citrus and tropical fruit, white peach and pink grapefruit.

On the palate it has plenty of character with elegant mineral elements. The acidity is well integrated with the fruit, making for a harmonious whole. Cometa is without doubt one of the finest examples of this grape variety to be had and is a point of reference for Southern Italy's white wines.
