Minutolo is is an ancient grape brought back from near extinction by Gianni Carparelli of I Pastini. It is uniquely aromatic and floral whilst also being exotic and full bodied. The winery “I Pàstini" was born in 1996 and is located in the heart of the Itria Valley (the valley of the trulli) in Puglia. Using ancient winemaking traditions and with the help of modern winemaking techniques, the Carparelli family are producing wines that express the new face of local wine production. The main aim is to restore and enhance local grape varieties: Fiano Minutolo, Bianco d’Alessio, Verdeca, Susumaniello and Primitivo.
