Azienda Agricola Sturm - Collio Pinot Grigio 2014 Ml. 750
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.
Berry to Silk. Shows in the long run.
This changeable wine, like a chameleon changes according to the circumstances and yet maintains its refines. Elegant and refined as it is, it dominates over any dining table, fluently expressing itself in various accents. Pinot Grigio is lively and brilliant by character, turning from berry into silk in the mouth. Striking in the long run: what at first seems wild flowers turns into apricot and leads you far, far away from where you started off.
