Vie di Romans

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, friuli-venezia-giuli Italy

Vie di Romans is based in the heart of Isonzo, where Gianfranco Gallo's 60 hectares of vineyard produce about 250,000 bottles a year. The well-drained soil is stony, glacial and rich in minerals, soaking up whatever rain falls like a sponge. An easterly wind brings cool night temperatures to temper the hot summer days and the large diurnal range slows ripening and allows the grapes to accumulate a great deal of flavour. This, along with the low yields that Gallo achieves and his proclivity for picking grapes only once fully mature, gives single-vineyard wines of great intensity and richness. As a result, Gallo releases the wines a year later than is usual.

This richness is evident in his Pinot Grigio from the 'Dessimis' vineyard. It has a coppery ‘ramato’ colour that comes from a short skin maceration before fermentation, and boasts a lovely texture and nutty character. The 'Flors di Uis', a blend of Malvasia Istriana, Friulano and Riesling Renano, is striking for its minerality and aroma. Their elegant Chardonnay has a spicy character that comes from Gianfranco’s judicious use of oak. All these wines have the hallmark of great individuality, something that really marks Gianfranco Gallo out from the crowd.
