The 2018 Dolée is a particularly exceptional expression this vintage - a single varietal 100% Friulano, indigenous to Italy, from the Dolée vineyard. The expert hand of Gianfranco Gallo has quite simply produced one of Italy’s greatest expressions of this grape variety. Scoring this offering from Vie di Romans a remarkable 95 points, Monica Larner (Wine Advocate) notes that "the bouquet is pure and fine, but the Friulano grape—especially in the hands of a winery of these credentials—is especially impressive in terms of mouthfeel and texture. There is a sweet softness and textural creaminess that gives the wine solid, mid-weight appeal. Then, all of that abundant fruit comes to an elegant close with a pristine note of salty mineral".

Producer

Hidden deep in the heart of Isonzo del Friuli, at the far southeast of Italy's most northeasterly vinous region, Vie di Romans stands proudly amongst the very finest producers of Italian wine across the whole country.

 

From this seat of viticultural power, the legendary Gianfranco Gallo crafts truly beautiful wines from his 60 hectares of vineyards. Broadly speaking, this entire area is comprised of well-drained soils which are rich in minerals and provide excellent water retention for the precious vines. From the East, consistently cool winds regulate the fruit's temperature during the hot ripening summer months. This tempering of the heat prolongs the grapes' time on the vine before maturation, allowing for greater development of characteristics and, ultimately, the intensity of the wine.

 

Naturally, this 60-hectare area is dotted with utterly unique and characterful terroirs in the form of single vineyards. The idiosyncrasies of these plots, which express themselves in the most wonderful ways through the wine in the bottle, are Gallo's true passion. Following a strict methodology of low yields and selective harvesting times, he coaxes the very best expressions of his varied terriors into our glasses.
