Antonio Argiolas at the end of the Thirties founded the homonymous winery in Serdiana, in the South of Sardinia. For decades he has worked to ensure that the name of the winery and the quality of the wines produced constantly improve, even after passing the baton to his own children. Argiolas’ decision to expand production in the 1970s was fundamental, in contrast with the rest of the producers encouraged by the state to uproot their vineyards, as well as the collaboration with the oenologist Giacomo Tachis. In 1988 the “Turriga” received high marks and awards in the Vinitaly, and is among the best wines produced in Sardinia; the same happens on the occasion of Vinitaly in 1997, almost 10 years later with the recognition also of the “tre Bicchieri” from Gambero Rosso. Since 1991, the winemaker of reference has been Mariano Murru and the cellar is currently under the guidance of Franco and Giuseppe Argiolas and their children, who represent the third generation of the company.
Traditional vinification in white.
Pale straw yellow color with greenish reflections. The nose is subtle, delicate, with hints of yellow fruit and tropical fruit of pineapple, peach and citrus, herbs and marine minerals. On the palate it is fresh, dry and straight, with abundant final acidity and a good minerality.
Argiolas Costamolino is perfect in combination with shellfish and seafood, even first courses based on the latter. Also perfect with delicate dishes based on asparagus. Alternatively, we see it very well as an aperitif especially on spring/summer evenings.
