Vermentino often shows the fragrance of macchia, the mix of evergreen shrubs and herbs that typifies the Sardinian landscape. Costamolino hints at aromas of pine and mint coupled with ripe stone fruit and sweet citrus. The palate is at once vibrant and textural and finishes with lingering acidity. Costamolino is produced with the Mediterranean table in mind. The wine’s lemony acidity will accent rock lobster or squid but carries enough weight to work with spaghetti topped with bottarga or a bowl of brothy clams and fregola. Vermentino’s herbal flavor can also highlight vegetables such as fava beans or fennel.

Attractive yellow apples, peaches and spices. Fruity and bright on the medium-bodied palate. Drink now.

COMMENTARY: Vermentino is often one of my first choices when I am looking for white dinner wine. The 2018 Argiolas® Costamolino is an excellent wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright, sassy, fresh, and delicious. Enjoy its authentic aromas and flavors of lemon drops, rustic earth, and savory spices with Cantonese salt-baked chicken over a bed of jasmine rice. (Tasted: January 6, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
