Is Argiolas is a selection of 100% Vermentino from the oldest vineyards of the Argiolas estate. The grapes are harvested later than the Costamolino Vermentino to obtain fuller body and riper fruit flavours and aged 6-8 months on the lees. The wine is vinified entirely in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and vibrancy.

TASTING NOTES

Is Argiolas shows a ripe, almost tropical-fruit profile that reflects longer ripening on the vine. Aromas and flavours of fully ripe apricots and peaches are accented by notes of melon, almond, and honey. Bright acidity provides succulence on the palate to an otherwise richer expression of Vermentino.

Pairings

The richness of Is Argiolas calls for richer flavours on the table. Antipasti of steamed artichokes or ricotta filled squash blossoms would be ideal pairings. The ample weight and texture of Is Argiolas also makes it an easy match for pasta such as seafood risotto or ravioli stuffed with potato and mint.

Meet the Maker: Argiolas Famiglia

THE MAKER: ARGIOLAS

Antonio Argiolas at the end of the thirties founded the winery. For decades, he made her grow, and she continued to be there even when she passed the baton to her children. Today his grandchildren, the third generation of the family, work here and Argiolas is the foremost wine estate on the island of Sardinia producing archetypal wines from native varietals.
