  • Score: 94 Vintage 2019 James Suckling Plenty of cooked and dried apple with some pie crust and a hint of toffee. High-tone and aromatic. Full-bodied with a tight center-palate and lots of fruit and fresh acidity. Opulent and energetic at the end. Drink or hold. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2019 Wine Spectator An enticing nose of lime blossom and spice draws you into the glass of this round and harmonious, medium-bodied white. Bright acidity frames flavors of creamed yellow apple and pear fruit, candied ginger and mineral as they linger on the lightly mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2024. 400 cases made, 100 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 95 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate Polished, clear and silky, the Vie di Romans 2018 Friuli Isonzo Chardonnay Vie di Romans is a beautifully balanced wine that gives equal weight to the intensity and quality of the fruit and the abundantly enriched texture of the mouthfeel. This is Chardonnay presented in 360-degree splendor with peach, melon, honey, pastry crust and cream custard. Ten months of aging on the yeasts gives the wine added dimension and opulent richness. Saffron, spice, cumin and fragrant sandstone are intermingled on the long and silky finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 94 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media As is usually the case, the Chardonnay Vie di Romans really stands out amongst its peers, especially in the 2018 vintage. There’s an undeniable richness to the bouquet as this gorgeous expression slowly blossoms in the glass. Pretty white and yellow florals, lemon confit, hints of custard, peach and sweet melon all come forward over time. It’s silky and pliant in texture, with formidable weight, yet balanced by brisk acids, as ripe citrus-tinged fruits and minerals excite the senses. A subtle hint of sweet exotic spice and almond lingers on the long and dramatic finish. The 2018 is charming today, yet also full of potential. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

  • Score: 95 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate The 2016 Friuli Isonzo Rive Alte Chardonnay Vie di Romans is exotic and tangy, just slightly ripe and absolutely beautiful. The notes of exotic fruit and papaya are almost incomparable in definition, with some sweet cinnamon mingling in there as well. The mouthfeel is silky and long, with an esoteric or abstract quality that is hard to put into words but remains mysterious and attractive nonetheless. Enjoy this barrique-aged Chardonnay with someone who can appreciate this level of craftsmanship. Production is exactly 57,613 bottles. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
