GAMBERO ROSSO – TRE BICCHIERI
“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.” – 94 points, James Suckling
The unwavering dedication of the Gallo family (not our Modesto friends!) to vineyards and wine dates back over a century and is rooted in the labor and determination of family members over three generations. Gianfranco, who has managed the estate since 1978, introduced radical viticultural programs and has devoted painstaking attention to winemaking practices; these initiatives have given the stamp of unique personality to the wines of Vie di Romans over the last 30 years, making them some of the most premier wines in the entire peninsula.
The 140 acres of Vie di Romans vineyards are located in a niche microclimate that benefits from a soil rich in alluvial fans and minerals that have been carried there by glaciers over the millennia. Moreover, the Bora winds from the East cause large daily temperature fluctuations. Piere means “stone” in the Friulano dialect and refers to the rocky nature of the soil.
