Argiolas Costamoloni D.O.C. Vermentino di Sardegna 2015

Argiolas Costamoloni D.O.C. Vermentino di Sardegna 2015, $12.99-$16.99, 92 points*,  poured a rich gold color with a green cast.
Smells of apple and pome fruit with a fresh-cut hay aroma were excellent.
Light-bodied with good acidity harbored elusive flavors which were reflective of the aromas accented by granite infused lime notes.
Finished fantastic on lively ginger, melon rind, and a potent 14% alcohol.
A rather complex white wine comparable with a good Sauvignon Blanc.
Paired perfectly with my steamed Maine lobster and melted butter.
*In vino veritas: Cellar Tracker was not as impressed with this wine, but after spending several hours with this one, I'll stick with my high praise.

  1. Really nice producer from Sardinia. If you get the chance, try their Korem red blend. And, another producer to watch for is Pala. You're doing a good service here mate. Forza Italia!

    1. John: As always thx for the info and encouragement.
      If I encourage one or two others with these supporting posts, then I'll be pleased (of course the drinking of such great wines is hard work;).
      Tuscan Vines is The giant at this, but one does what one can: every drop makes for a river! Everyone has their calling!

  2. True amico. And hey, just FYI, you transposed the wine name in your post.
