Vie di Romans
Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
Vie di Romans is a 60-hectare estate located in the easternmost part of Italy near the Slovenian border in Friuli, a DOC recognized for the quality of their white wines.
The terroir is defined by high-density low-yielding vines planted in varied gravelly ferrous soils, buttressed by winds from the Adriatic 20 kilometers to the south and the Alps 30 kilometers to the north. These competing influences temper ripening, especially with cooler evenings that elongate the growing season.
Various varieties of white wine are made at Vie di Romans, but the consistent theme is defined by wines of ample volume that offer appealing textural energy and verve.
