• "Ciampagnis" Chardonnay Friuli Isonzo DOC 2019

      “Ciampagnis” Chardonnay Friuli Isonzo DOC 2019

      The grapes for the Ciampagnis come from a 7.8 hectare site located just above sea level at an altitude of 32 metres. Fresh, Mediterranean-spicy bouquet with notes of white flowers and an exotic touch. On the palate with medium pressure and a beautiful silky texture, rich aromas of citrus, pineapple and apple, the long yeast ageing provides a terrific freshness and complexity. A wine with great enthusiasm potential, full of energy and personality with a mineral finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Dolée" Friulano Friuli Isonzo DOC 2018

      “Dolée” Friulano Friuli Isonzo DOC 2018

      Friulano Dolée is another impressive flagship of Vie di Romans. Bright straw yellow colour. Clean, fresh aromas of honey, citrus and pear, complemented by ripe banana. On the palate, its soft texture provides an ideal sounding board for the beautifully layered fruit basket of peach, melon, quince and fresh pear. A ripe, finessed wine that finishes long and with excellent acid-fruit balance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2018 Friulano Dolée wafts up with a beguiling display of dried nectarine, tart pink citrus, candied ginger, cardamom and hints of white pepper. There’s plenty of textural depth, feeling medium in body while slowly releasing layer after layer of ripe apricot, kiwi and grapefruit, all peppered with exotic spices. The mouth waters with cheek-puckering tension, while a salty, savory note of minerality keeps you coming back for more. The 2018 finds balance by walking the line between ripeness and refinement. It’s a real standout." Vinous

      "The Vie di Romans 2018 Friuli Isonzo Friulano Dolée reveals a wide spectrum of aromas with stone fruit, citrus, wild sage, rain-soaked sandstone and honey. The bouquet is pure and fine, but the Friulano grape - especially in the hands of a winery of these credentials—is especially impressive in terms of mouthfeel and texture. There is a sweet softness and textural creaminess that gives the wine solid, mid-weight appeal. Then, all of that abundant fruit comes to an elegant close with a pristine note of salty mineral. This wine is aged on the lees in stainless steel containers for 10 months." Robert Parker

      Vibrant golden straw yellow. The floral and spicy nose offers ripe pear, cinnamon, chamomile, white peach and grapefruit with subtle hints of ginger. Rich and racy, with layered fruit tree and tropical fruit flavours and a subtle spice that lingers beautifully on the rich, lush finish. Its excellent saltiness and a very juicy, fresh cut accompany the tropical and spicy fruit flavours on the long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Piere" Sauvignon Bianco Friuli Isonzo DOC 2019

      “Piere” Sauvignon Bianco Friuli Isonzo DOC 2019

      Rive Alte Sauvignon Blanc Piere is the lighter of the winery's two Sauvignons, but both wines are beautiful in their own way. Piere shows earthy notes of green olive, garden tomato leaves and sage on the palate, rounded off by upbeat and tangy flavours of citrus orange peel and some crushed mineral and white pepper. All the elements are in place and like all Vie di Romans whites, Piere needs time in the glass to find its centre and minerality. And if you have the patience to give it to him, he is great.

    About the winemakersVie di RomansFriuli
    Vie di Romans

    "Great wines are made in great terroirs. The fundamental element is always the land." This is what Gianfranco Gallo likes to tell us in conversation. The Friulian winemaker is dedicated to producing exceptional site wines that combine the unique terroir and the particularities of the grape variety in the wine glass. Like hardly any other winery, his Vie di Romans operation stands for continuous top quality and has long been considered one of the flagship companies of the Italian wine scene.

    Gianfranco took over the estate from his father in 1978 and carried out a radical restructuring of the vineyards in the years that followed. In order to express the characteristic growing zones as clearly as possible, it was decided to have the subsoil, surface and microclimate of the individual vineyards scientifically studied. The current production philosophy is thus based on the awareness that the vineyards have small but very important differences, which are ultimately reflected in the respective cru wines.

    On 60 hectares, the predominantly white varieties of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Malvasia Istriana, Friulano and Riesling Renano mature, as well as other red grape varieties. The extensive vineyard is characterized by clay and ferruginous soils with alluvial limestone and sandstone, which do not produce high yields. Gianfranco's rigorous natural viticulture takes 650 to 750 hours of work per hectare each year.

    The extreme attention to terroir results in each Vie di Romans wine being labeled with the name of the grape variety and the name of the vineyard of origin. The single-varietal wines and refined cuvées are deliberately released two years after the harvest, at the ideal time for ripening, highlighting the best characteristics of the diverse Isonzo DOC growing area, located right on the Slovenian border.

    The name of the winery translates as "Road of the Romans" and refers to a road that in Roman times connected the two most important cities of Friuli, Aquileia and Cividale del Friuli. It winds through the village of Mariano del Friuli, past Gianfranco's winery and its carefully tended vineyards. The 40 harvests that the winemaker has now had are characterized by a wide range of wines that are full of character, long-lived and, above all, expressive.

    Gianfranco Gallo and his team have more than earned their cult status and remain an unmistakable guarantee of quality to this day. SUPERIORE.DE
