Color - Golden yellow with lively green glints.
Bouquet - Rich and intense. Aromas of peach, golden apple, white figs, vanilla cream, and meringue mingle with overtones of hazelnut and honey. The wood is shy but well balanced.
Taste - Soft, round and concentrated on the palate; the fruit flavors are wonderfully balanced by
a powerful streak of acidity and rich mineral character.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Lively acidity keeps this medium-bodied white fresh and focused, framing the poached apple, lemon curd, blanched almond and vanilla notes, while the smoky undercurrent gains momentum on the spiced finish. Drink now through 2020. 13,333 cases made. AN

Planeta’s first winery, Ulmo, together with an old family farmhouse, is situated on the banks of the Arancio Lake in the eastern portion of Sicily. The soil here is deep and chalky - perfect for the production of Planeta’s great white wines: Chardonnay and Cometa.
|An outstanding match for ravioli with fish and lemon sauce, handmade pasta with truffles, and grilled meats. After some years of bottle aging, enjoyable with mature cheeses.
