"The 2009 Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino is a clean, precise white that seems to have acquired an extra level of textural richness in this vintage. Beautifully delineated throughout, the Costamolino shows off lovely balance and a pure, crystalline finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012. " (WA)

"Green-tinged yellow. Ripe citrus fruits and almond on the nose, with complicating notes of flowers and herbs, especially thyme. Ripe and fairly fat for this cuvee, with almost creamy-rich herbal apricot and apple flavors, this only hints at the lemony minerality and delicate flavors typical of this bottling. A bigger and more impressive Costamolino than usual, this one manages the neat trick of being both well delineated and rich. Enjoy it over the next two years." (IWC)

Winery Notes
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.
