Vie di Romans, Pinot Grigio Dessimis

Vie di Romans

2017

The bouquet is full and wide, with scents of pear and notes of yellow fruit. Amazing complexity on the palate expresses ripe fruit together with great structure. A seductive texture, this wine is very long and persistent on the finish. The remarkable balance is given by an reserved use of barrels, where it spent 9 months. Pinot grigio Dessimis takes its name from the vineyard, a 7,5 hectares vineyard which produces one of the best white of Vie di Romans winery. Absolutely to try!

Friuli Venezia Giulia

Geographyand Climate Conditions

Friuli-Venezia Giulia is a wine region in the far north-eastern corner of Italy, and is bound by the borders with Austria and Slovenia. Though the wines produced in this region represent only two percent of the Italy's production, to some here is where the best whites are made.

The mountainous topography in the north and east lifts many vineyards above the low-lying cloud that is sometimes trapped between the hills and the coast. This allows the vines to bask in bright sunshine without overheating, allowing the grapes to develop full phenolic complexity and aromatic depth before their sugar levels peak.

DOCG and DOC

The region is home to three DOCG titles, all for white wines. The Colli Orientali del Friuli Picolit and its Ramandolo enclave, and Rosazzo DOCG. Complementing the three DOCGs are ten DOCs with the most important represented by Friuli-Grave DOC, Lison-Pramaggiore DOC, Carso DOC which is the most eastern italian DOC, stretching around Trieste, including also part of Balcanic peninsula. Colli Orientali del Friuli and Collio Goriziano are the remainings DOC where are produced outstanding white wines.

Grape varieties

Apart for Friulano wine, other local whites include Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Ribolla Gialla, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Traminer Aromatico, Verduzzo and Malvasia Istriana. Among the reds produced in Friuli-Venezia Giulia are Collio Cabernet, Merlot, Pignolo, Pinot Noir, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Schioppettino, Tazzelenghe.
