Casa Vinicola Antonutti is a winery from the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. Four generations of the Antonutt family have been growing grapes in the heart of the Grave del Friuli region for just over a hundred years. The winery now owns around fifty hectares of vineyards there. The Meduna, Cellina and Taglimento rivers have brought large quantities of dolomitic limestone into the zone, and the area itself is sheltered from the north winds, but benefits from its proximity to the sea. The Antonutto vine grows in a place called Barbeano, where the soil is rocky. There is a big difference between day and night temperatures, so the grapes can be harvested later, when they are already saturated with aromas.
Harvesting takes place when the berries have reached optimum ripeness, and in the winery the fruit is pressed until soft. Soaking is carried out at low temperature. Fermentation with specially selected yeast takes place in stainless steel tanks, after which the wine is left to mature for some time in the same tanks. The wine is then bottled and left to mature in the cellars of the winery for several months. The wine will keep for at least 3-4 years.

The wine is a great aperitif, perfect with white meat, poultry, seafood/shellfish and grilled vegetables.
