Vie di Romans is a top-shelf producer located near the coast of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italyrsquo;s fine white wine capital. Gianfranco Gallo shrewdly organizes his vineyards and cellars, creating a controlled environment in which to turn out his classy wines. His accomplishments are such that he has been summoned by fine wine estates in California (ironic, considering his last name) to teach the locals how to make truly dignified white wines. Under Gianfrancorsquo;s stewardship and technical guidance, the winery produces classically styled, single variety bottlings as well as creative Super-Friulian blends.

Medium deep, bright straw-yellow. Lively, varietally accurate nose screams chardonnay with its scents of banana, pineapple and minerals. Bright and fresh in the mouth, with vibrant citrus and apple flavors lingering well on the immensely satisfying finish. Not particularly complex but absolutely delicious and one of Italy's best entry-level chardonnays.


Winemaker's Notes:

Vie di Romans is based in the heart of Isonzo, where Gianfranco Gallo’s 30 hectares of vineyards produce about 150,000 bottles a year. The soil is stony and glacial, and soaks up whatever rainfall there is like a sponge. From the vineyards, to the east, a semicircular mountain formation is visible. There is a pass in the mountains through which a cool east wind blows. This cool wind causes a big difference between day and night temperatures, and enables the grapes to accumulate a great deal of flavour. This, along with the low yields Gallo achieves, and his proclivity for late picking, gives wines of great intensity and richness. "Ripe and flavorful, with apple pie and cream character. Full-bodied, with a long, long finish. Caressing and delicious." Wine Spectator, 2007
