Casa Vinicola Antonutti is a winery in Friuli Venezia Giulia. The four generations of the Antonutti family have been growing grapes in the heart of the Grave del Friuli for just over a hundred years. The winery now owns about fifty hectares of vineyards. The rivers Meduna, Cellina and Taglimento have brought large amounts of dolomite limestone into the area, and the area itself is protected from northerly winds, but benefits from its proximity to the sea. Antonutti grape grows in a place called Barbeano, where the soil is pebbled. The difference between day and night temperatures is large, so the grapes can be harvested later when they are already full of aromas.
Gentle pressing of the grapes, fermentation with the addition of selected pure yeast. The aging takes place in stainless steel tanks. Aging in bottles.
Lively, aromatics of lemon, gooseberry, slight grassy florals, full of character. Slightly herbal with notes of sage, tomato leaf, and nettle with citrus overtoneson the palate. Medium plus acidity, refreshing finish. Nice and simple flavors.
The nose exhibits an elegant and subtle bouquet. Initially marked by fragrant notes, it evolves in pleasant hints of hay and toasted almond.
