Description

Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean and lies roughly 190 miles west of Italy’s mainland. The kingdom of Aragón ruled Sardinia for 400 years and many of its vines came from Spain, including Bovale Sardo, Carignano, and Cannonau. The island can be divided into three principal viticultural areas: the north, influenced by the marine influence of the Costa Smeralda which specializes in Vermentino. Argiolas is the foremost wine estate on the island of Sardinia producing archetypal wines from native varietals. Antonio Argiolas, who died in 2009 at the age of 102, inherited seven acres of vines from his father in 1938 and was the first on the island to convert to modern viticulture to pursue quality over quantity. His sons, Franco and Giuseppe, replanted the vineyards in the 1980s with the goal of reducing yields and focusing exclusively on Sardinian grapes. Joined by enologist Mariano Murru, the Argiolas family is today recognized as Sardinia’s leading wine producer.

TASTING NOTES
Plenty of lime zest and dried pineapple on the nose with green apple and some freshly cut grass. It’s medium-bodied with sharp acidity. Citrus notes evolve into a long, mineral and saline finish. Concentrated, yet refreshing.
