THE REVIEW

Prepare yourself for the most amazing Pinot Grigio experience. This is what real, dry Pinot Grigio looks and tastes like before so many winemakers strip it of its wonderful properties.
    Imagine a wine with copper hues and light bronze colored reflections. Imagine still, a wine that is commonly referred to as white, yet red when picked off the vine. Imagine a wine so intoxicating that it can juggle being both silky and textured. We can say with certainty, that once you experience Vie di Romans, you will realize that all these years you have not been drinking Pinot Grigio, but rather a commercially watered down grape stripped of its essence.
    When picked, Pinot Grigio grapes are light red to purple in color, not green and not yellow. When the skins are kept on long enough during fermentation (few if any winemakers have the patience for this), the wine not only retains a copper hue, but this meticulously patient style of wine making allows for a depth and flavor profile that cannot be replicated in any other varietal.
    From the high hills of Friuli, cool nights blow off the heat of the day from the Adriatic. White cherry, dried strawberry, pear skin, and red apple aromas lead way to a palate of white peach, cherry pit, and crushed stones. Dry and wonderfully balanced, amazing acidity and incredible texture offer focus and depth in the finest Pinot Grigio being made today! Seafood, certainly; chicken and cured meats, absolutely.
    If you enjoy your current Pinot Grigio, you will love Vie di Romans. And if you enjoy amazing wine, then don't hesitate to load up on this Gambero Rosso favorite that has been called "the archetype of great Pinot Grigio."Read More »
