Professional Wine Reviews for Argiolas Di Sardegna Is Vermentino 2015

Rated 91 by Decanter
Bright pale straw. Peach and minty herb aromas on the complex nose. Rich, ripe and dense in the mouth, with sweet, almost luscious stone fruit and brown spice flavors. Finishes very long and creamy, with a rich and ripe, multilayered texture. This spends two months on the lees to gain added size. From the oldest vineyards owned by Argiolas, selected in Gallura by Antonio Argiolas and planted at the S’Elegas estate roughly thirty kilometers away from the modern winery building. (Vinous)

Winery Argiolas

Varietal: Vermentino

Vermentino grapes are thought to have originated in Spain, and this white wine varietal is still grown in small quantities on Spanish land. However, it quickly moved eastwards to Italy, and found a new home in the warm and sunny Mediterranean climate there, where it became highly popular due to its hardiness and resistance to rot. Today, it is most closely associated with the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, where it is widely grown and used for producing both fine white wines and table wines, prized for their freshness and acidity. Vermentino wines tend to be rather light in body and low in alcohol, which allows their crispness and acidic nature to come forward, and their flavors of lime and green apple to shine.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
