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.
Western Friuli. Predominantly pebbly plain of alluvial origin. Double arch cane pruning with a density of 3500 plants per hectare. Yield of 180 q per hectare. After soft pressing of the grapes and fermentation in stainless steel for about 8 days, the secondary fermentation takes place in autoclave – Martinotti method – with selected yeasts at 14°C for about 60 days. At the end follows the filtration and bottling where it will rest before being put on the market.
