Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino 2013
Editorial Reviews for Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino
Very citrussy and fruity on the nose with complicating hints of peach and spicy, antiseptic, polleny floral notes. Juicy and a bit fleshy on entry with depth of flavor that recalls fruit nectar. this is in fact a bit thick on the palate with lovely peach tinged pineapple and clementine flavors. The creamy texture really becomes pronounced on the backend, though the modest finish shows a touch of refreshing austerity that help to refresh the palate. 85pts

A stony base note underscores the flavors of apple, rose petal, melon and spice. Creamy and pretty, with citrusy acidity for balance. Drink now through 2016. 51,000 cases made.
The 2013 Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino opens to a bright, luminous straw color and lively tones of tangerine, white almond and spring flower. Costamolino makes a terrific value buy and a wine of this freshness and crispness would pair beautifully next to a lightly grilled tuna steak. The finish is cooling and refreshing. A tiny percentage of aromatic grapes are added to the blend and do help to bring noticeable intensity to the bouquet.
