Grape variety:
100% Merlot

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.

Winemaking

Guyot training system with vine density of 4500 vines/ha and a yield of 90/100 q of grapes/ha.

Soft pressing of grapes. Maceration and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. First maturation in stainless steel, then in already used tonneaux for another six months. Bottle aging.
