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.
Pebbly plain with fractions of red clay of morainic origin, Middle Friuli. Guyot-trained vines with a plant density of 4500 vines and 90/100 q of grapes per hectare. Soft pressing of the grapes. Maceration and fermentation in steel. Maturation for a first period in steel and for a further 6/8 months in used tonneaux. Refinement in the bottle.
Dark ruby red. Intense, fruity aromas of dried plum and wild blackberry on the nose. The taste is rightly tannic, balanced with a persistent finish.
