“Slightly rose color here. It is deep and intense, showing dried apples and spices with some pomegranate and rust overtones. Red apples, too. Full-bodied, dense and flavorful. Rather chewy at the end. Drink now.”~JS
Wine Spectator 92
“This is lightly copper-colored hue, offering appealing aromas and flavors of ripe apricot and yellow peach, passion fruit collie, chopped hazelnut, verbena and spun honey. Lightly chalky in texture, with well-cut acidity providing definition for the lush range of flavors. Mouthwatering and well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2026. 1,500 cases made, 500 cases imported.”~AN

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.
