More information on wine critics and ratings

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) : 94 Points (2018)
The Vie di Romans 2018 Cuvée Friuli Isonzo Flors di Uis is an assembly of Malvasia, Riesling and Friulano that builds beautiful intensity on both the nose and the palate. Attempting to dissect the bouquet is not easy because there are so many elements to take under consideration, from orchard fruit and ripe apple to custard cream. The protagonist of the blend is Malvasia, and the wine's floral notes of honeysuckle and yellow rose are quite amplified as a result. Thanks to nine months of aging on the lees, the wine is broad, rich and generous to the end.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2018)
Lovely, perfumed nose of lilies, lime blossom, passion fruit and lychee. More citrus-peel and lightly herbaceous notes on the palate. This is full-bodied and very intense, yet there’s some good acidity. Warm finish. Drink now.

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.
