Argiolas 2017 Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna DOC
100% Vermentino | Alc: 13.5% – Fruity and Smooth, Crisp
Vermentino often shows the fragrance of macchia, the mix of evergreen shrubs and herbs that typifies the Sardinian landscape. Costamolino hints at aromas of pine and mint coupled with ripe stone fruit and sweet citrus. The palate is at once vibrant and textural and finishes with lingering acidity.
Argiolas Costamolino is produced with the Mediterranean table in mind. The wine’s lemony acidity will accent rock lobster or squid but carries enough weight to work with spaghetti topped with bottarga or a bowl of brothy clams and fregola. Vermentino’s herbal flavor can also highlight vegetables such as fava beans or fennel.
“This is a serious vermentino that takes on the weight and intensity of a serious chardonnay with dried-apple and pineapple character. Full and layered with focused and lively acidity that follows through to a vivid and intense finish of fruit and acidity.” 94 Points – James Suckling
“Smooth and full-bodied, this delicious white boasts enticing scents of spring wild flower, exotic fruit and Mediterranean scrub. On the tangy, enveloping palate, a saline-like mineral note and fresh acidity brightens juicy pineapple, candied lemon drop, mature apricot, fennel and aromatic herb. Delicious” 92 Points – Wine Enthusiast
