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: 95 Vintage 2018 James Suckling An aromatic, medium-to full-bodied white with aromas of lemon, grapefruit zest and hazelnut. Complex beeswax and hay notes, alongside stones and nettles. Good acidity and texture and wonderful depth on the finish. Drink or hold. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 93 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate As opposed to the Piere that is aged in steel, this wine sees 10 months of lees aging in French oak. The Vie di Romans 2018 Friuli Isonzo Sauvignon Blanc Vieris reveals ripe peach aromas and more flavors from the orchard with apple, pear and tropical notes at the back. As the wine expands to fill the confines of the glass, it peels back with orange peel and candied fruit. Dig a little deeper and you get warm notes of pastry crust and cream custard, with some of the salty mineral you should always expect from these unique Friuli sedimentary soils.

  • Score: 93 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Vieris is decidedly spicy in this vintage. Yellow flowers are elevated and intensified by notes of lemon-infused young mango and pungent minerals. It’s texturally rich and smooth while also sporting a blend of zippy acidity and sour citrus that forces the cheeks to pucker and thirst for more. Inner florals resonate over salty tension with a twang of grapefruit rind and savory spice. Wow, this is a hold-onto-your-seat expression of Sauvignon that’s sure to have a lot of fans.

  • Score: 94 Vintage 2017 Wine Advocate This was a vintage that saw reduced yields across the board with quite a few climatic challenges thrown at winemakers in Friuli. The team at Vie di Romans was evidently undeterred by the bad weather, instead producing a wine with some hot-vintage aromas of ripe apricot and honey that are well balanced against the fleshy richness of the mouthfeel. The 2017 Friuli Isonzo Sauvignon Blanc Vieris (which is aged on the lees in oak) shows softness and silkiness, all capped by abundant stone fruit, melon and pear. The results are impressive, and 33,753 bottles were released. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media Bright pale golden-tinged straw color. Penetrating herb- and oak spice-accented aromas of grapefruit and green lime, with undertones of ripe stone fruit in the background. Shows a vaguely green fruit and herbal character to its fresh citrus and tropical fruit flavors, but in a riper, less pungent style than this winery’s 2017 Piere. Closes long and gently flinty, with very good focus and clarity. Though there is no lack of personality here, I think the hot vintage led to this wine having a slightly compressed aromatic expression. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 93 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate I drank this beautiful wine with a dinner of couscous with chicken, fresh mint and preserved lemon. The 2016 Friuli Isonzo Rive Alte Sauvignon Blanc Vieris is not a pungent Sauvignon but rather a beautifully tempered and elegant one. It has the kind of creamy and long persistence that, to me, is an indication of a compellingly food-friendly white wine. There are lovely notes of candied orange peel with almond and fragrant garden herb. The wine ages on the lees in barrique for nine months. Production is 32,864-bottles strong.

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate There is a bit more heat in this vintage, but the 2015 Friuli Isonzo Rive Alte Sauvignon Blanc Vieris (with 29,853 bottles made) is a nice wine, with slightly more candied fruit and a thicker style compared to the 2016. It appears also to be a bit more saturated in its golden appearance. This is a warm and soothing Sauvignon that you might pair with pasta in a cream and lemon sauce. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
