Planeta Cometa 2012

Planeta Cometa 750ML 2012      
Sku: 51777

Harvested from two separate vineyards; Gurra, planted in 1998 and Dispensa planted in 1996. Both have roughly 4500 vines / hectare.

 Wine Advocate 92 points (May 2014)
A pure expression of Fiano, the 2012 Sicilia Cometa would surely rank on a list of southern Italy?s top white wines. This is a compelling and irresistibly rich wine packed tight with melon, white almond, exotic fruit and ripe papaya. It shows naturally thick density and a long, menthol-driven finish. Drink 2014-2018.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; the juice is clarified through cold settling overnight and then inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks over a 20 day period at a cold temperature. Bottled in the second half of February following the year of harvest.

Technical notes
14% abv

Food pairing
An outstanding match with seafood tartare, asparagus soup, ravioli with ricotta cheese and duck breast with wild mushrooms.
