Vie di Romans is one of Italy’s most esteemed estates. Considered by many to be the best whites in all of Italy, the wines are highly concentrated, mineral and textured expressions of pure varietal character. The immaculate estate comprises 53 hectares in the Isonzo Valley — 5 km east to Slovenia, 80 km north to the Alps, 20 km south to the Adriatic. Gianfranco Gallo took over management of the estate from his father in 1978, when he was only 19, and introduced a number of radical viticultural programs. Fanatical attention to detail in the vineyard and cellar, and an undying curiosity make these some of the best, most unique wines in Italy.
VIE DI ROMANS, Mariano del Friuli, Isonzo Rive Alte
Gianfranco Gallo crafts some of the World’s Greatest White Wines at his 53 ha estate in the Isonzo valley — 5 km east to Slovenia, 80 km north to the Alps, 20 km south to the Adriatic… Deep, calcium-rich soils created by glacial erosion. Long daylight hours due to northerly latitude (46º), constant wind, a mix of continental and Mediterranean climate...
In the cellar, the wines are treated to a completely anaerobic environment — crushing & de-stemming, long maceration, and pressing are all performed under the protection of nitrogen, designed to preserve aromatics. The wines are then aged in a mix of older and new barriques, tailored to the vineyard source.
Gianfranco succeeded his father in 1978 at the age of 19, and in 1990 completed the first stage of a highly specific new winery. At this time, Vie di Romans replaced the family name on the estate, as a certain American wine company demanded a change of name.
‘The quality of the wines here is so high that they take turns winning Tre Bicchieri…’ — Gambero Rosso
