There’s also the people who go to the supermarket on the way home from work, get home and perfunctorily open a bottle to watch television for a few hours before going to sleep to do it all again the next day.
Sicilian wines are not for them, either.

For the first time in ages, I had the Planeta Cometa Fiano and I felt about it exactly as I always did: affable, over-the-top glamorous, completely unpretentious and overall just delicious. If Dolce & Gabbana had a wine then it would be close to this.
This is effortless Sicilian style. On a grey London day, I wanted to reach for my dark sunglasses to pour it. The colour is golden straw like mid-afternoon sunshine by the beach. It had a glamourous wave of wild honey, Sicilian oranges, tropical fruit with a mouth-wateringly dry, cleansing freshness of minerality in its core. It’s a wine of grand gestures over a tablecloth of fine Sicilian lace.
Looking at the latest collection from Dolce & Gabbana with all their Sicilian lace, white wines from Sicily are the perfect wine for summer style. Or, if you simply don’t have the sun this Summer BRING IT.
