Made from 100% Vermentino grown in the Costamolino vineyard, which is located 625 feet above sea level. The grapes were harvested in September and vinified in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation was partially carried out. Costamolino is straw yellow in color with green highlights and an intense yet delicate bouquet that displays distinct varietal characteristics. Delicate and pleasantly refreshing on the palate.
"Argiolas accomplishes fabulous things with Vermentino (known as Rolle in France) from their high altitude vineyards. The delicate straw color of the 2005 Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna is followed by beautiful aromas of almonds, oranges, lemon, honey, apple skins, and a hint of tropical fruits. This crisp, elegant, medium-bodied, intense white should be enjoyed over the next year."
