"Dut'Un" - a rich, complex, beautifully balanced wine with mineral nuances in taste and charming fragrant bouquet. Unlike traditional monosortovyh white wines of the region, blending "Dut Un" consists of a unique blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in equal shares. The grapes for the wine are harvested from two vineyards farms - "Vieux di Romans" and "Veris", located on the territory of Friuli Isonzo Rive Alte. The vines are grown at an altitude of 31 meters above sea level. Soil vineyards - alluvial type containing sand, gravel and clay and has good drainage.

Excerpt "Dut Un" is held on the lees in barriques, some of which - the new, for 10 months, after which the wine is bottled and aged for another 20 months in bottle.
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.
