Azienda Agricola Sturm - Collio Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Ml. 750
From 18 to 24 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.
The tannins mingle with the spicy blueberry, offering the pleasure of a good structure.
It is a sign of Earth and carries its essence up to the nose and in the mouth. It discloses a rich variety of aromas, offering dense notes of bell pepper mingled with sweet spices. This Cabernet Sauvignon is perfectly balanced and persistent. It evokes tenacity and diplomacy. It is stubborn and coherent; it never disappoints your expectations in terms of an intense and rich sensory experience. In time many things come and go. This wine remains!
