Citra "Core"
Terre di Chieti Sangiovese IGT

These family owned properties, some with only 1 hectare, create a mosaic of small vineyards stretching north to south along the Adriatic coast and east to west from the sea to Majella Mountain. The range of climate and topography offers unparalleled quality and variety. Winemaking process from vineyard to bottle led by renowned enologist Riccardo Cotarella.

Wine Production

Hand-harvested grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks with a long maceration at a controlled temperature. The must is frequently pumped over for 8-15 days to intensify the aromatics and the color.  The wine is then finished in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

This wine shows brilliant Sangiovese character of sour cherry and Macchia Mediterranea (Mediterranean wild herbs) with a persistent finish that is both dry and balanced.
