94+ points Ian D'Agata (Terroir Sense): "Knockout Fiano, one of the best ever from Planeta. Tropical fruit nuances abound and complicate pit fruit and honeyed nuances. Finishes thick rich and long, but refined too. Drinking Window: 2024-2030. (Apr 2023)"

93 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "The 2021 Cometa opens with a honeyed sweetness, complicated by dried apricots and peaches and then enriched by a hint of sweet butter. This is distinctly savory in style, with silken textures and masses of mineral-tinged orchard fruits that slowly saturate. The 2021 finishes perfumed and long, leaving sour melon and sweet herbal tones to resonate. There is so much to like about this varietal Fiano. It's a wine of lovely contrasts. Drink: 2024-2030. (Sep 2023)"

93 points Decanter: "This groundbreaking wine introduced Fiano to Sicily, and Sicily to the world upon the release of its first vintage, 2000. 10% is vinified in 35hl French oak barrels; the majority in stainless steel, with plenty of lees stirring. The 2021 is a bright, mineral wine with aromas of green fruits, balsam and tropical fruits, while in the mouth it delivers soft stone fruits, honeysuckle and yellow fruits. The mid-palate is stony and the finish honeyed. Classy. Drinking Window: 2023-2038. (May 2023)"

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$55 list] A warm sweetness defines the nose, which has notes of honeysuckle, quince paste, cooked apple and banana. On the palate, there's a rich, nutty banana bread, with overtones of citrus zest and salt providing pop. A delicious and comforting, yet structured, wine. (Dec 2023)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "[$55 list] Sleek and well-knit, this is long and mouthwatering, with a subtle streak of salinity underscoring flavors of poached apricot, pineapple and persimmon, chopped almond and saffron. Lightly chalky in texture on the lingering finish. Fiano. Drink now through 2029. (2/29/24)"

91 points James Suckling: "Juicy and tropical, with notes of papaya, mango stone, lemon curd, flowers and almonds. It's medium-bodied with a fleshy, slightly oily texture. Excellent concentration and density. Fiano. Drink now. (7/28/22)"
