Friuli Venezia Giulia At a Glance

Region Name Friuli Venezia Giulia

Here the vines benefit from direct sunlight and a complex climatic intersection of the warm Mediterranean influence of the Adriatic Sea coupled with the cooling breezes from the Julian Alps.

  • Score: 94 Vintage 2018 James Suckling Wild aromas of peaches and fresh herbs with lemons follow through to a full body and creamy texture. Very tangy, fruity and intense. Licorice and stone notes, too. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate The Vie di Romans 2018 Friuli Isonzo Sauvignon Blanc Piere reveals a zesty and pure expression of the grape that does not hold back aromatically in this vintage. The bouquet is redolent of citrus, exotic fruit, green papaya and a pronounced touch of green olive. Indeed, those greenish aromas gain strength as the wine warms in the glass. Subtle mineral notes settle on the close and reinforce this wine's lean, crisp personality. This wine ages on the lees in stainless steel vats for nine months. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Piere will truly make you a believer in Sauvignon Blanc from Friuli. The bouquet is intense and classic, with masses of grassy wild herbs, lemon zest, crushed limestone, slate and hints of savory exotic spice. It’s sometimes savory and sometimes sweet; yet most of all, it’s the purity that comes through, like eating a ripe grapefruit with just a pinch of sugar on top. The cheeks pucker toward the close with a tart acid and citrus tug that begs you to take another sip while pretty inner florals linger on. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2017 Wine Advocate From a hot growing season with moments of challenging humidity at the end of summer, the Vie di Romans 2017 Friuli Isonzo Sauvignon Blanc Piere is snappy and crisp with white flower, exotic fruit and a green note of peppercorn or garden tomato leaf. I am reminded of green olive in the 2018 vintage, and I find that same aroma here but perhaps more faded. The wine is just a tad richer and more fleshed out in terms of mouthfeel, but the aromas are pronounced and generous. Production is 61,202 bottles. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2017 Wine and Spirits Notes of white pepper and grassy herbs accent this wine’s flavors of lime and white grapefruit. Hints of raw honey soften its jalapeño heat. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2017 Wine Spectator Poached apricot and Meyer lemon peel notes are accented by hints of jalapeño and passion fruit in this lip-smacking, light- to medium-bodied white, with a stony undertow. Drink now through 2023. 5,000 cases made, 288 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2017 James Suckling Lots of sliced-apple and asparagus aromas and flavors. Herbal. Medium to full body. Some marzipan. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 94 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate The 2016 Friuli Isonzo Rive Alte Sauvignon Blanc Piere shows good earthy notes of green olive and sage, with other buoyant and tangy aromas of citrus orange peel as well as some crushed mineral on the palate. The spicy white pepper sensations are beautiful as well. It's a very nice offering that would pair well with chicken. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
