Professional Wine Reviews for Argiolas Vermentino Di Sardegna Is 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)

Additional Information on Argiolas Vermentino Di Sardegna Is 2015

Winery: Argiolas

Varietal: Vermentino

The Vermentino grape varietal is a white wine grape thought to have originated in Spain. However, today it is most closely associated with Italian wines, and it is grown in much of northern Italy and on the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, where it is a highly important varietal for the production of both fine wines and flavorful table wines. Vermentino is popular with vintners, as it is an easy grape to grow, vigorous and highly resistant to the diseases and mildews which cause so many problems when it comes to other varietals. It produces wine which is pale and light in body and alcohol content, but which is refreshingly crisp and acidic, holding flavors of lime and green apple. As such, it is popular with those looking for a light and invigorating wine, perfect for drinking with seafood.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
