"Plenty of sliced apple, grass and fennel seed character. Medium body, tangy acidity and smoky, slate aftertaste. Always excellent. Drink now."~JS

"Bright pale straw. Very pungent herbal and green fruit aromas. A very strong herbal note complicates the grapefruit and white peach flavors in the mouth. Finishes long but a little raw. A little aggressive today. I'd cellar this for a year or two to let it round out."~ID
Wine Enthusiast 91
"Classic varietal aromas of tomato leaf, exotic fruit and citrus practically jump out of the glass. The bright palate doles out juicy peach, nectarine, grapefruit, celery and sage while a mineral vein lends energy."~KOK

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.
