"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."~JS

"This cuvée, a blend of Malvasia Istriana with smaller portions of Riesling and Fruliano, was the most expressive of the white wines we tasted from Vie di Romans. Creamy and highly aromatic, it unfolds with scents of white blossoms that lead into clementine flavors, warmed by notes of nutmeg on the finish."~SJ
"The 140.85 acres of vineyards are located in a niche microclimate that benefits from rich soil in alluvial fans and minerals that have benn carried there by glaciers over the millenia, as well as, the Bora winds from the east that result in large, daily temperature fluctuations. Flors di Uis is a fantasy term that in Fruliano dialect means 'flowering of the grapes" and recalls the sweet, floral fragrance of the grapevine blossoms."
"Bright straw yellow. Charming aromatic bouquet of white flowers, golden apple, apricot, pear, honey, with mineral and citrus sensations. On the palate the graceful flavors of Riesling and Malvasia Istriana melt perfectly with the weight and texture of Fruliano. Firm acidity and a clean, rich finish. Ideal with more elaborate seafood dishes, like lobster risotto, tuna tartar, and with any spicy dishes. 23,300 bottles produced."~Winery Notes
