Argiolas Costamolino

Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna DOC bottle image

Wine Description

Made from 90% Vermentino and 10% of other Sardinian grapes grown at an elevation of 625 feet. The grapes were harvested in September and vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation was partially carried out, allowing for greater elegance without sacrificing the typical freshness of Vermentino.

The 2009 Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino is a clean, precise white that seems to have acquired an extra level of textural richness in this vintage. Beautifully delineated throughout, the Costamolino shows off lovely balance and a pure, crystalline finish.
— Wine Advocate, Aug 2010
“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.”
— International Wine Cellar, Apr 2011
