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.
