“Pinot Grigio Like No Other!”

The Finest Pinot Grigio Made!

By David Gettenberg

Prepare yourself for the most amazing Pinot Grigio experience!

Imagine a wine with copper hues and light bronze colored reflections. Imagine still, a wine that is commonly referred to as white, yet naturally red when picked off the vine. Imagine a wine so intoxicating that it can juggle being both silky and textured.

"Dessimis" is what authentic, dry Pinot Grigio looks and tastes like. Today, many winemakers strip this delicious grape of its natural color. That's because when picked, Pinot Grigio skins are naturally red to purple in color, not green and not yellow.

If a winemaker keeps the skins on long enough during fermentation, the wine not only retains a copper hue, but this meticulously patient style of wine making adds tremendous depth and flavor. We can say with certainty, that once you experience Vie di Romans, you will be enjoying Pinot Grigio at a whole new level.

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 stock up on this Gambero Rosso favorite that has been called "the archetype of great Pinot Grigio."
