Straw yellow with green glint and a deeply perfumed and floral nose.

The wine displays delicate but intensely flowered aromas, with characters of wisteria and sweet jasmine, integrated with light spicy notes.

The palate shows surprising power and is made in a full-bodied style. The natural zest of the Riesling component ensures the retention of vibrant freshness and complements the soft, ripe characters of the Malvasia.

The persistent finish is long and aromatic.

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 (2017)
A blend of 57% Malvasia Istriana, 35% Riesling Renano and 8% Friulano, the Vie di Romans 2017 Cuvée Friuli Isonzo Flors di Uis shows a little hint of varietal purity that you can trace back to each of the three grapes used. There are the white flowers of the Malvasia, the lifted citrus or Pomelo notes of the Riesling and the softer peach and stone fruit aromas of the Friulano. These three branches work together in harmony to build the impactful aromatic profile that distinguishes this wine. The Flors di Uis is not as broad or creamy as some of the other monovarietal wines tasted from this producer, however the results are exceptionally clear and balanced.

James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2017)
Sliced apples and limes with hints of honey and lemon tea. Full body. Very intense flavors with powerful acidity and brightness on the palate. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2016)
Light-bodied and lithe, this balanced white shows exotic hints of lychee and kiwifruit, with melon, lime granita, wet stone and ground ginger flavors. Bright and mouthwatering on the lingering finish. Malvasia Istriana, Friulano and Rhein Riesling. Drink now through 2023.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2015)
This focused white opens with alluring aromas of citrus, yellow stone fruit and a whiff of baking spice. Made with Malvasia Istriana, Friulano and Riesling Renano, the savory palate offers juicy peach, nectarine, apricot and ripe pear. It has a tangy lemon-drop finish.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2014)
A wet growing season yielded a light version of this blend, with lovely aromatics and slightly lower alcohol than it usually carries. Made from nearly equal parts malvasia and riesling with 15 percent friulano, it smells of spring wildflowers, peaches and orange zest and tastes of juicy stone fruit and citrus. An orange-oil bitterness and brown spice gives an impression of sweetness, yet the wine is fully dry, a cool, zesty match for a spicy Thai salad.
