Supple aromas of citrus, pineapple, tropical fruits and honey. Delicate and pleasantly refreshing on the palate.
This is a very good Vermentino di Sardegna. It smells and teast like pear, lemon and a bit of mediterrenian herbs. The teast stay very long on the thoung. A perfect summer wine.
Aromatic nose, peach and citrus, which was consistent with the taste. Tasted lemon and herbs. Found this perfectly balanced and perfect with my "merluzzo" dish! Great value for a solid balanced flavorful white wine.
It's a good Vermentino, yellow color, aromas of citrus, fresh, on the palate a bit 'too much alcohol but very drinkable
External Reviews for Argiolas Costamolino DOC
This refreshing white from Sardinia has a dried floral fragrance with a whiff of Mediterranean herbs. The palate offers creamy white peach and mineral flavors that finish crisp and clean.
The Costamolino is from Sardinia, and is made from 100% Vermentino grapes. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks, which helps to emphasize the fruit. The color is somewhere between deep yellow and green. Aromas of fresh peach, herbs (maybe basil?) and a smidgen of honey continue on the palate with great balance and acidity. This wine also has a nice, well-rounded mouthfeel with a citrus finish. It is a perfect warm weather aperitif, and pairs very well with fish and shellfish dishes.

Delicious with Asian food and sushi.
