Argiolas 2000 Bianco Isola dei Nuraghi ($13.49)
Clear, pale gold, this Sardinian white offers warm scents of almonds and hazelnuts, figs and star fruit in an appealing aroma. Clean and fresh, lemon and lime flavors gain complexity and interest from nuances that reflect the nose. Crisp, cleansing and long. Made primarily from the Sardinian Vermentino grape with a splash of aromatic Malvasia. US Importer: Winebow Inc., NYC; Leonardo Locascio Selection. (Nov 11, 2002)
FOOD MATCH: Crisp, citric flavors make it a natural with seafood or light vegetarian fare; we enjoyed it with a simple Italian-style soup of broccoli with tiny pasta.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
