Azienda Agricola Sturm - Refosco Del Penducolo Rosso 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 virile part of the vine, graphite turned into wine.
