Azienda Agricola Sturm Collio Ribolla Gialla 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.
A wine that embodies freshness itself. It is both straightforward and light.
Once upon a time it was served at the poorer tables: a wine to be drunk everyday, the genuine thirst quenching drink that would accompany the hard working people. We have crafted this wine preserving all its freshness and enhancing elegance: to be simple is anything but to be banal. Ribolla Gialla is a lively wine with a sharp tang, which gives it its unmistakable character. This wine has come a long way in recent years. It is now well recognised at a close-to-international level!
