Argiolas Vermentino Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino 2012
a clean, bright nose of citrus, fresh pear, and hints of herb and spice ). In the mouth the same citrusy flavors are experienced, as well as some grassy/herbal, mineral touches. the finish is extremely clean, flavorful, full of fruit and perfectly balanced. This mineral component is likely from the granite-rich soil of Sardinia, and makes a perfect complement to shellfish -- especially oysters. You can also match this wine successfully with simply prepared white fish, salads, pork and chicken.
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.

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.
