Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Costamolino is straw yellow in color with green highlights and an intense yet delicate bouquet that displays distinct varietal characteristics. Supple aromas of citrus, pineapple, tropical fruits and honey are wonderfully supported by a zesty acidity. Delicate and pleasantly refreshing on the palate, Costamolino is the wine of choice for many dishes, from fish antipasti and pastas to vegetables terrine, salads, white meat casseroles, and risotto. Delicious with Asian food and sushi.

3/5/13 Fairly aromatic..lemon cream, tropical fruit (pineapple, banana), antiseptic, conventional grocery store edible multicolored and white flowers. Tastes like pear, 1% milk consistency (would be higher but has light but fresh acidity). Banana leaf tea, semi old almond, honestly kind of flabby. Good fresh fruit front to mid palate but no residual sugar. Powdered lemonade concentrate very watered down and slightly sweetened with honey background flavors. I say 86+ but very easy appeal. Would be nice with spicy food no question or as a quaff able semi rich food(s) wine.

This winery, on the beautiful island of Sardinia, continues to turn out topnotch values. All tank-fermented and aged, it reveals a light straw color in addition to an expressive nose of almond-infused lemony fruit aromas, a good texture, and and a dry, pure, clean personality. It should drink well for 12-14 months.

The relatively dry, exotic, lemony-scented 1998 Vermentino exhibits fresh, ripe fruit as well as a medium-bodied, dry finish. This Vermentino, a varietal known as Rolle in southern France, is fermented at low temperatures and bottled early to preserve its fruit. Drink it over the next year.

This aromatic wine has a flowery bouquet that is backed up with a nice spritziness. Serve with seafood, especially shrimp or a lightly broiled fish.

Made from 100% Vermentino grown in the Costamolino vineyard, located 625 feet above sea level. The grapes are harvested in September and vinified in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. Costamolino is straw yellow in color with green highlights and an intense yet delicate bouquet that displays distinct varietal characteristics. On the palate it is delicate and pleasantly refreshing.

A white with green apple and light lemon character. Medium body. Fresh finish. Clean and lively. Drink now.

Green-tinged yellow. Ripe citrus fruits and almond on the nose, with complicating notes of flowers and herbs, especially thyme. Ripe and fairly fat for this cuvee, with almost creamy-rich herbal apricot and apple flavors, this only hints at the lemony minerality and delicate flavors typical of this bottling. A bigger and more impressive Costamolino than usual, this one manages the neat trick of being both well delineated and rich. Enjoy it over the next two years.
