“Vivid peach pit, red guavas, cloves, dried rose petals, lavender, dried herbs and nutmeg. Full body, a very phenolic and oily texture with loads of red-apple flavors and a textured finish. Drink now.”~JS
Wine Spectator 90
“This rich Pinot Grigiois is a pale salmon color, with toasty, smoke and oak spice accents and a minerally underpinning layered with flavors of apricot and lemon meringue. Balanced by lively acidity, this is round and lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 4,325 cases made.”~AN
“Slightly pink color (ramato style). The nose is fine, with delicate notes of crushed flowers, sweet red berries, peach and a hint of citrus fruit. On the palate it is fresh with a full body and some tannins that add persistence and structure. Ideal with sophisticated recipes like Risotto alla Milanese or heavier foods such as crepes and soufflés. Perfect also with seafood and grilled fish.”~Winery Notes

The unwavering dedication of the Gallo family to vineyards and wine dates back over a century and is rooted in the labor and determination of family members over three generations.Gianfranco, who has managed the estate since 1978, introduced radical viticultural programs and has devoted painstaking attention to winemaking practices; these initiatives have given the stamp of unique personality to the wines of Vie di Romans over the last 20 years, making them some of the most premier wines in the entire peninsula.The 50 hectares of vineyards are located in a niche microclimate that benefits from soil rich in alluvial fans and minerals that have been carried there by glaciers over the millennia, as well as, the Bora winds from the east that result in large, daily temperature fluctuations.
