Vie di Romans - Dessimis Pinot Grigio Friuli Isonzo 2021


In Friuli Venezia Giulia, most of the best vineyards are located in the southeastern part of the region facing Alpine foothills’ slopes. 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.

The Pinot Grigio "Dessimis" is an expressive white wine with character made like a red, which from the very first moment announces itself with a very interesting pedigree. The soul of the bottle develops around a fruity and floral olfactory profile, which opens up to an enveloping palate that makes for an elegant and satisfying tasting experience.

"This copper-colored Pinot Grigio (a result of brief skin contact) offers subdued aromas suggesting yellow flower, toasted nut and citrus zest. Aged in barriques, the linear, rather lean palate offers oak, coconut, lemon and a note of bitter nut while a saline note wraps up the finish. Not your typical Pinot Grigio for sure." - Kerin O'Keefe - Wine Enthusiast 

Highly recommended skin-contact Pinot Grigio. Worlds apart from any other Pinot Grigio.
