"Dessimis" Pinot Grigio, critics say - a wine that most eloquently conveys the taste of Pinot Grigio. The eponymous vineyard "Dessimis" where the vines are grown Pinot Grigio, is located in the Friuli Isonzo Rive Alte, at an altitude of 34 meters above sea level. Vineyard soil - clay, mixed with gravel and small stones, so have good drainage, and the presence of iron oxides and aluminum gives the reddish color of the earth.
Grapes for "Dessimis" Pinot Grigio collected manually in the middle of September, carefully separated from the stems and compressed before being subjected to cold maceration at 8 ° C for 6 hours. Fermentation takes place in old oak barrels at a temperature of 15-19 ° C for 11-13 days. After that, the wine is kept 7 months on the lees in oak barriques (32% - a new, 42% - one-year, 26% - two-year) and 10 months in bottles. Wine storage capacity is 12-17 years.
Vie di Romans - one of the farms in Friuli, the most respected wine critics. Title economy Vie di Romans - "Roman road" - exactly conveys historical fact. Through the valley of the river Soca once a road, between Rome and the port city on the Adriatic. Thanks to the many winds that blow from the continent and the Adriatic Sea, this place is truly unique climate - a permanent change in the weather contribute to the slow maturation of the grapes.
For over a century farm run by a family Gallo. The current owner of the winery Gianfranco Gallo got his business inherited from his father in the 70s of the last century, while still a teenager. From this point there are used organic farming methods - no pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Unique character and identity of all wines Vie di Romans - the result of a long sequence of winemaking Improvement Program, which began in the 80s of the last century. The essence of this program is to create a balanced environment for each vineyard, taking into account its individual characteristics.
Gianfranco Gallo - a perfectionist. Pereslaschennye and undisciplined in oak wine was not for him, it is more to the liking of wine with a rich, complex flavor, aftertaste and great aging potential. That is why white wine farms are sold not earlier than 2 years after the harvest.
