More information on wine critics and ratings

Light golden with a subtle, elegant nose of summer flowers, acacia blossom and hints of honeysuckle.

The wine is lightly spiced, with the judicious oak ageing bringing notes of vanilla and cinnamon.

It shows lovely buttery, honeyed and floral characters, all lifted on the finish by a lively freshness that is characteristic of this area of Italy.

This is in large part due to geographical situation, with estate vineyards occupying some of the finest sites of the Isonzo river valley, on well-draining alluvial soils over calcareous rock, benefiting from the sunny but cool conditions where the continental easterly 'bora' wind tempers the warmth coming up from the Adriatic. But this great natural potential would be nothing without the dynamic direction of owner Gianfranco Gallo, who has relentlessly pursued quality here since he… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 95 Points (2018)
Polished, clear and silky, the Vie di Romans 2018 Friuli Isonzo Chardonnay Vie di Romans is a beautifully balanced wine that gives equal weight to the intensity and quality of the fruit and the abundantly enriched texture of the mouthfeel. This is Chardonnay presented in 360-degree splendor with peach, melon, honey, pastry crust and cream custard. Ten months of aging on the yeasts gives the wine added dimension and opulent richness. Saffron, spice, cumin and fragrant sandstone are intermingled on the long and silky finish.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2018)
A rich, aromatic white with sliced and cooked apple, steel and stone. Full-bodied with layers of fruit, but in a focused and polished way. It’s creamy and fruity with a round texture and a delicious, flavorful finish. Mineral and steely notes at the end. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2016)
Light- to medium-bodied and harmonious, with a lightly juicy, round frame for flavors of poached peach, quince paste, jasmine and pastry. Offers a creamy, spiced finish. Drink now through 2023. 4,500 cases made

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2015)
Mature orchard fruit, candied citrus, toasted oak and vanilla aromas emerge in the glass. The round polished palate offers baked yellow apple, pineapple and toasted almond while a stony mineral note lends depth.

This was the first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, the first red wine to be blended with non-traditional varieties (like Cabernet) and one of the first Chianti reds not to use white grapes.

This Pinot Noir is a blend of parcels from our own vineyard at Pipers River, Coal River Valley and our growers at Swansea and Ouse. Each of these sites is unique with distinctive individual terroirs, building complexity into the final wine blend.
