The Antonutti family are quietly going about their business and producing a range of excellent value for money wines that are classically Friulian. Husband and wife team Lino, Adriana with their children Nicola & Caterina have set out on an ambitious project to push their family winery into the top echelon of Friuli producers.
The estate is located in the Friuli Grave DOC where the rivers Meduna, Cellina and Tagliamento, which in the course of thousands of years, have deposited enormous quantities of chalky calcium magnesium carbonate torn from the mountains by the violence of the waters and dragged along the river beds into the valleys .The mountains shelter the vineyards from the bittely cold northern winds and the Adriatic tempers the climate with its close proximity.
The wines are made in a clean, focused style with wonderful ripe fruit and balanced palate. The Antonutti's are offering fanatstic value for money as recognised by the Gamero Rosso Guide to Vini d'Italia 2008.
