"Lemon and apple curd, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla, pie crust, dried apricots and papaya. Full-bodied and very textured with a butteriness, but forthright acidity that carries this through to a creamy finish. Drink now."~JS
Wine Spectator 91
"Light- to medium-bodied and harmonious, with a lightly juicy, round frame for flavors of poached peach, quince paste, jasmine and pastry. Offers a creamy, spiced finish. Drink now through 2023. 4,500 cases made."~AN
"The 140.85 acres of vineyards are located in the 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. Vie di Romans means "road of the Romans" in the Fruliano dialect and refers to the Roman road that connected the cities of Acquilea and Cividale which once passed through this vineyard. Bright straw yellow color. Intense and complex nose with aromas of vanilla, citrus, ripe golden apple, and hints of toasted coconut. On the palate it is fresh, rich, well balanced with a persistent mineral finish. Ideal with seafood dishes, pasta and first courses, barbecues."~Winery Notes
