Vermentino di Sardegna "Costamolino" DOC Argiolas
The Vermentino Costamolino belongs to the classic white line of the Argiolas company. It is honored by the DOC Vermentino di Sardegna certification. The Vermentino vines are cultivated in the company territory on hills in the Pranu Sturru-Suelli, Costa Bancodi and Perda Campus-Selegas hamlets. They are located at 190 meters above the sea level with an optimal exposition at South-east so under the positive influence of the wind. Also the soils make their part. The vine used for the production of the Costamolino Argiolas is almost 100% Vermentino grapes. The little difference is made by the addition of Sardinia DOC varietals. The climate is the Mediterranean with mite winters, few rains and very hot and ventilated summers. For this reason the manual picking of the grapes occurs in the early morning when the air is fresher. There is a careful selection of the grapes and the grapes are softly pressed. Then there is the cooling at 10°-12°C with natural settling. Finally the fermentation at 16°-18°C for 20 days and the conservation under temperature control with a short passage on fine lees.
