Vie di Romans 'Flor di Uis' 2016

Vie di Romans is based in the heart of Isonzo, where Gianfranco Gallo's 50 hectares of vineyard produce about 250,000 bottles a year. The soil is stony and glacial, and soaks up whatever rainfall there is like a sponge. A cool east wind causes a big difference between day and night temperatures, which in turn slows ripening and allows the grapes to accumulate a great deal of flavour. This, along with the low yields Gallo achieves, and his proclivity for late picking, gives single vineyard wines of great intensity and richness. As a result, he releases the wines a year later than usual. 

This wine is straw yellow in colour with youthful hints and a deeply perfumed floral nose, it displays intense aromas of wisteria and sweet jasmine, balanced with light spicy notes. The full-bodied palate shows surprising power while the natural zest of Riesling ensures fresh and vibrant acidity. The finish is wonderfully long and aromatic.
