Argiolas Vermentino Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino 2006

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Right now, the slight spritz that gives this wine its zip is just a little too prominent. The pear and peach fruit tinged with bitter almond is fresh enough to stand on its own; this wine should taste broader and smoother in another six months. Drink now with raw shellfish or as a patio wine; pair it with delicate chicken and fish dishes down the road.

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.

Light gold in color, with chamomile and lemon character on the nose. Full-bodied, with medium acidity and flavors of dried apple and pear. Drink now.

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.

Quite ripe, with floral pineapple, yellow melon and vanilla notes featuring a creamy texture, which expands on the tangy finish. Drink now.

The irresistible 2006 Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino is made in a very pure, nuanced style, with plenty of detail to balance its generous fruit. This gorgeous white offers outstanding length and notable harmony. It is far from your typical Vermentino. I actually preferred it slightly to the estatersquo;s more important Is Argiolas bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2008.
