Winemaker's Notes

Deep straw yellow with prominent greenish hue.

Dramatically explosive. Bursts of citrus fruit, particularly grapefruit and green mandarin. Lychee. Followed by balsamic, spicy features including lavender, oregano and ginger. Hints of camomile flower.

Agile and witty. Clear mineral tones enhance its freshness. Gathering finish. Powerful and controlled.

One of the best white wines to come from Sicily, and Italy for that matter, Cometa is a layered and complex warm-climate white with ripe and generous tones of mature peach, lemon zest, almond, pear, vanilla and honey that fit together in perfect harmony. It's well crafted and beautifully textured and pairs with creamy lobster bisque. - Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast

With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
