Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna 2021

Sardinia, ItalyYou can set your watch by Costamolino because year in and out, these guys deliver, and the price of the wine remains stable and sensible. The highly respected estate is on the island of Sardegna, where it concentrates on native varieties such as this vermentino. This vermentino comes from cool, hillside vineyards set 190 metres above the Mediterranean. The grapes get a super light pressing, and only free run juice makes it to the fermentation. The result is an overwhelmingly enticing floral aroma dusted with lemon and ginger. Bitter quince and juicy, ripe stone fruit balance each other off before a sweet tangerine closes the door. My advice is don’t open this too early before dinner, or you will have to open another bottle for dinner. Seafood is best here, including squid, crab, clams, mussels and more. Serve throughout the holidays.Tasted: 19 September 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
