  4. Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna DOC

Made from 95% Vermentino and 5% other Sardinian varietals, the grapes for this wine were harvested between August and September before being vinified in stainless steel tanks to preserve their fresh, aromatic qualities. Malolactic fermentation was partially carried out, allowing for greater richness without sacrificing the typical effusiveness of the Vermentino grape.

Tasting Notes

Lemon-green in color, delicate aromas of citrus and tree fruits complement undertones of tropical fruits and honey. On the palate, the wine shows a delightfully zesty acidity, which makes it both food-friendly and crowd-pleasing.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with pasta primavera, gremolata sauces, vegetable terrines, and shrimp cocktails.
