White wine making, as it happens for all the white grapes by inoculating selected yeasts and using modern equipments in order to obtain soft presses to detriment of yield grape/must.
The fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature, which varies from 18° till 20°C, in steel tanks and it lasts not more than 12 days. After this, we make a couple of decanting in order to allow a long and natural cleaning. Until the bottling it is kept in steel tanks at a temperature of 12°C.
It has always been considered as a vintage wine thanks to its typical and unmistakeable acidity. We bottle it on middle April and this allows it to maintain its easy drinking also after two or more years.

A family business from '60
More than forty years ago the Cantarutti history as Friulian winemakers began. It was the end of the ‘60s when Alfieri Cantarutti was mesmerised by a magnificent location with a small farmhouse, set among the foothills of Rosazzo: a stunning position and a breathtaking landscape.
Passion for the territory and respect of traditions are the keys of Cantarutti success.
