Hints of copper in the glass. The bouquet is full of sweet pastry aromas, scents of Williams pear skin and notes of yellow fruit.

Extraordinary complexity on the palate expresses ripe fruit together with great structure.

A seductive texture, this wine is very long and persistent on the finish.

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

Dessimis is a rich and exotic pinot grigio, with pungent scents of apple blossom and clove that lead into layers of dried orange and grilled strawberry laced with notes of lemongrass. Those spicy notes continue on the long, creamy finish, warmed by a pleasant bitter almond note.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2019)
Slightly rosé color here. It’s deep and intense, showing dried apples and spices with some pomegranate and rust undertones. Red apples, too. Full-bodied, dense and flavorful. Rather chewy at the end. Drink now.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2018)
The Vie di Romans 2018 Friuli Isonzo Pinot Grigio Dessimis boasts a pale copper color with amber and peachy pink highlights. This vintage is not as wide or as texturally generous as the 2017 vintage also tasted in this report. However, the 2018 offers lifted, sharp fruit that is delineated and pure. Those subtle mineral nuances also appear with more clarity. There is tart berry, white cherry, wild mint and bitter almond. I also taste a mild tannic crunch. That structure comes from extended maceration on Pinot Grigio skins, as does the wine's pretty color. It would be interesting to check in on its evolution in five year's time. The wine ages on the lees for two months in French barrique. Rating : 94+

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2016)
This rich Pinot Grigio is a pale salmon color, with toasty, smoke and oak spice accents and a minerally underpinning layered with flavors of apricot and lemon meringue pie. Balanced by lively acidity, this is round and lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2021.

Pinot Grigio favours cooler climates and finds its ideal habitat on hillsides. Livio Felluga's vinification techniques give this wine finesse and elegance while preserving the faint coppery highlights that are Pinot Grigio's hallmark.
