PV Tasting Notes
For me, this is one of the stand out wines of the Torre Rosazza range, pale yellow, this offer lovely aromas and flavours of peach, pear, pineapple and acacia honey, medium bodied with lovely acidity and good texture ending with touches of fennel on the long finish. Complex but so enjoyable simply to drink on its own this should develop wonderfully over the next few years. Tasted Sept 2007Independent Review

Medium golden-yellow color. Clean aromas of green apple and ripe pear, with pungent notes of smoky tangerine and herbs. The lightly herbal character carries through on the palate, which features delicate green apple and pear flavors. This leaner version of pinot grigio is a far cry from the fatter, noble rot-affected '05 bottling but it will probably last longer, even if it's also ideal for drinking in the short term. (Bedford Brands, Larchmont, NY). Vie di Romans. I have always been a huge fan of Gianfranco Gallo's wines. Gallo is one of the most technically proficient producers you'll ever meet in Italy. That said, I cannot help feeling that his two sauvignons, though still widely acclaimed, are becoming increasingly alcoholic and flat in their flavor definition. Yes, the house style is one of extreme richness and texture, but this style is less appropriate for sauvignon blanc. Some of the other wines here, however, remain among Italy's very best. 88 points

Offers rich aromas of honey, mango, pineapple and cream. Medium- to fuil-bodied, with plenty of fruit. Finishes minerally and crisp. Drink now.
It goes with fish, grilled or in sauces, Spaghetti alle Vongole, Smoked Chicken salad, pasta with tomatoes and basil, roast eggplant, great with Veal in a creamy sauce or even Salmon with a buttery creamy sauce and also Onion Quiche.
The lovely vineyards of Torre Rosazza are located on two natural amphitheatres of eocene marl, which are terraced and lit up by the sun all day long. They also benefit from the refreshing influences of the nearby Adriatic sea and the Alps.
On the top of the hill, the 18th century Palazzo De’ Marchi hosts the cellar, the warehouse and guest rooms.
