"Notes of white pepper and grassy herbs accent this wine's flavor of lime and white grapefruit. Hints of raw honey soften its jalapeo heat."~SJ
"The 140.85 acres of Vie di Romans vineyards are located in a niche microclimate that benefits from a soil rich in alluvial fans and minerals that have been carried by glaciers over the millennia. Moreover, the Bora winds from the East cause large daily temperature fluctuations. Piere means "stone" in the Fruliano dialect and refers to the rocky nature of the soil."
"Bright straw yellow color. The nose is elegant and complex with mineral notes and ripe aromas of citrus and exotic fruits, together with fresh hints of sage and lemon verbena. The sip is full, fresh and persistent with a pleasant finish of mint, lime and minerals. Ideal with smoked or steamed fish starters, fish soup, grilled fish and risotto with seafood. Excellent also with asparagus based dishes."~Winery Notes
