Is Argiolas shows a ripe, almost tropical-fruit profile that reflects longer ripening on the vine. Aromas and flavors 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.
The richness of Is Argiolas calls for richer flavors 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.
