Straw yellow, this wine has an open, aromatic nose.

Fresh peach and greengage perfumes are complemented by a hint of tropical fruit.

The wine has excellent balance in the mouth between a rounded, fuller style of Sauvignon and the freshness that is characteristic of this region, finishing with a zesty citrus tang.

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

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2018)
Wild aromas of peaches and fresh herbs with lemons follow through to a full body and creamy texture. Very tangy, fruity and intense. Licorice and stone notes, too. Drink now.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2018)
The Vie di Romans 2018 Friuli Isonzo Sauvignon Blanc Piere reveals a zesty and pure expression of the grape that does not hold back aromatically in this vintage. The bouquet is redolent of citrus, exotic fruit, green papaya and a pronounced touch of green olive. Indeed, those greenish aromas gain strength as the wine warms in the glass. Subtle mineral notes settle on the close and reinforce this wine's lean, crisp personality. This wine ages on the lees in stainless steel vats for nine months.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2017)
Notes of white pepper and grassy herbs accent this wine’s flavors of lime and white grapefruit. Hints of raw honey soften its jalapeño heat.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2015)
Classic varietal aromas of tomato leaf, exotic fruit and citrus practically jump out of the glass. The bright palate doles out juicy peach, nectarine, grapefruit, celery and sage while a mineral vein lends energy.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 87 Points (2014)
A sleek white, layering racy acidity and smoke-tinged minerality with subtle notes of star fruit, chive flower, lime zest and ground white pepper. Drink now through 2018. 3,775 cases made.
