Review: 2019 Planeta Cometa Sicilia Menfi DOC

We last reviewed Planeta’s Cometa bottling back in 2012 (in a tasting with Francesca Planeta herself), when Sicily didn’t even have DOC status. The wine here hasn’t really changed — it’s still 100% fiano — but my impressions of it have evolved. Surprisingly dry, it offers hints of melon, lemongrass, and and a thick layer of white flowers, working its way to a gently bitter finish that pumps up a drier floral character and a grating of citrus peel. Lots of lingering potpourri.
