Azienda Agricola Sturm - Collio Bianco Andritz 2014 Ml. 750
To 12 months
It is this distinctive character blended with a pronounced minerality, sapidity and strength of our wines that contributes to the unique and unforgettable sense of place of this eastern edge of Friuli.
Besides being the land of the prestigious DOC zone, the Collio is geologically unique as it features layers of soil containing marl of Eocene origin; an ideal bed for the vines.
Zegla is a succession of slopes that cross the Collio Friulano up to Slovenia. It is more than just vineyards: it is the garden where the well recognised great whites grow. Perfectly sheltered from the harsh winds it has a microclimate that is ideal for the vines. In just a few hectares of land, there is a concentration of élite wines that express the true spirit of the Collio.
Close your eyes: the essence is concentration, it is part of us.
It is the result of our pursuing beauty and precision; our utmost care and passion. Great care and precision paired with a wise exploitation of the wood. Each grape berry has given its best in Andritz by offering all the minerality, characteristic of these carefully tended hill slopes, and by ripening to perfection during the warm summer evenings. The result is exceptional: it is pure strength, character and elegance, combined. Only the perfectly ripe clusters have been carefully selected and harvested by skillful hands. True persistence. The patience to wait for the right moment!
Andritz, homeland and heritage, is the native place in Styria located in the southeast of Austria from where the family's ancestors left, over a century ago, to set their roots in the Collio.
