($22) 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.
