A great white wine from Southern Italy grapes, able to compete with the great whites of the world: this is the initial project. For this reason, experimentation with Fiano was born in the 1990s, a noble and ancient variety of Campania origin. With intense and fruity aromas, great structure and minerality, Cometa has been able to express the characteristics of this vine in an original and unique way, so much so that today it has become one of the reference white wines of Southern Italy.

Vinification: the grapes were harvested by hand in 15 kg crates and refrigerated at around 12-13°C. Subsequently they were destemmed, crushed and passed to soft pressing and static sedimentation in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature, 6-7°C; subsequently the clear part was decanted and 90% fermented in stainless steel tanks and 10% in 35 hl oak barrels, at about 14-15°C for 12/14 days. At the end of fermentation, the wine was topped up with the same mass, leaving it on the primary lees, with daily agitation using a bâtonner or stirrer; in February, after a period of about 4 months, the wine was decanted by separating it from the coarse lees, leaving it on the finer lees with weekly stirring. Finally it was blended and prepared for bottling

Nose: 100% Fiano from calcareous-clayey soils which contribute to enhancing the aromatic markers of the Mediterranean maquis typical of this vine. Thus, between the broom flower and thyme, delicate scents of chamomile, hay, mango and pomelo can be traced. Wine with a surprisingly intense and enveloping aromatic nose

Palate: mineral with traces of vibrant sapidity that shake and quench your thirst. Then the rhythm changes to become slower and more harmonious, an invitation to sip this signature white with the right amount of calm, fully enjoying every nuance. The finish gives a silky tactile sensation with a very refined aftertaste of ripe apricots, almond blossom and basil leaf

Pairings: perfect with fish dishes especially with an excellent freshly grilled red snapper

First vintage: 2000
