Wine Review: Vermentino is a great fish wine and this particular wine would pair perfectly with you favorite sole or cod dish. This golden yellow wine opens with a pleasant light pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is lively, has a slightly creamy feel. It is a touch acidic and has spicy lemon like flavors. The finish is dry and a bit brief. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Costamolino is straw yellow in color with green highlights and an intense yet delicate bouquet that displays distinct varietal characteristics. Supple aromas of citrus, pineapple, tropical fruits and honey are wonderfully supported by a zesty acidity. Delicate and pleasantly refreshing on the palate, Costamolino is the wine of choice for many dishes, from fish antipasti and pastas to vegetables terrine, salads, white meat casseroles, and risotto. Delicious with Asian food and sushi.
