TASTING NOTES

The Vie de Romans winery is a historical winery located in Mariano del Friuli and one of the most representative in the region. Led by Gianfranco Gallo since 1978, it stands out for its profound knowledge of the terroir and the close link to the area. With great attention and care, Gianfranco Gallo carries on together with the tradition of bold and innovative winemaking choices. With the restructuring of the cellar in 1990, all the white wines began to be sold two years after the harvest. The grapes best express their potential thanks above all to the effect of the continental winds from the east, known as the Bora, which reach the Isonzo plateau from Slovenia and allow a good temperature range and a slow ripening of the grapes. Pinot Grigio Demissis is a dry white wine produced from 100% Pinot Grigio grapes from the Demissis vineyard, trained on the Guyot and spurred cordon system on a soil characterized by a good draining capacity and abundant rock content, ideal for this grape variety. After fermentation in steel tanks at a controlled temperature, the wine is refined by ageing on the lees for 10 months and a further 8 months in the bottle before leaving the cellar. To the eye, it has the typical coppery colour of Pinot Grigio, one of the most cultivated vines in the wine-growing regions of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The nose offers an intense bouquet of citrus fruits and fresh fruit. There are definite notes of grapefruit, lime, green apple, pear and a hint of exotic fruits and white flowers. In the mouth, it is soft and enveloping, thanks to the 10 months of batonnage, and well balanced. It is full of creaminess. The fruit is clear and juicy on the palate. Ideal for richer fish dishes such as salmon and tuna sashimi. Shellfish, grilled fish and white meats of veal and pork. To be opened as an aperitif with friends, at the beginning of the dinner instead of sparkling wine or to enjoy with first courses of fish. With this white Vie de Romans reaches very high levels and manages to give the right dimension to one of the most important and historic grape varieties of this area. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Vie di Romans

For almost a century, the Gallo family has dedicated itself to the world of wine in the Friuli Isonzo DOC zone. The turning point came with Gianfranco, who took over the family business in 1978 and in little more than 10 years made courageous and revolutionary choices for the time that would prove to be successful and visionary. The investments in the valorisation of individual vineyards and cultivated varieties, the decision to extend the ageing of all wines beyond 12 months and to go on the market 2 years later. All countertrend choices, which 30 years later have proved successful and relevant. After the first bottling in 1978, other important milestones in the progress of Vie di Romans followed, including the construction of a new winery and the separate vinification of grapes according to their areas of origin. The Gallo family's wines preserve the expression and uniqueness of the Friulian terroir, the vineyards show little diversity due to the climate and physical and naturalel factors that act on the soil and determine its characteristics. Name and address of producer/distributor: Vie di Romans - Loc. Vie di Romans, 1, 34070 Mariano del Friuli (GO). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
