Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna 2020

Sardinia, ItalyYou can set your watch by this rinse and repeat wine, because year in and out, it delivers a high-quality bottle. Costamolino comes off cool hillside vineyards set 190 metres above the Mediterranean. Fruit selection is thorough before it gets a light pressing. Only free-run juice makes it to the fermentation. The result is a super fresh and crisp white with bright, enticing floral aromas and a dusting of ginger. There is a small amount of bitter quince on the palate that sets off its juicy, ripe yellow apple streaked with a hint of tangerine. Do not open this wine too early before dinner because it will be drunk long before the food arrives, and it was made for food. Think crab, clams, stir fry, and more. Solid value.
