Merlot Terre di Chieti IGP Bisanzio 2021 - Codice Citra

It is difficult (if not impossible) to find a fault with this Merlot Terre di Chieti IGP Bisanzio. A wine made to be enjoyable and to satisfy the tastes of a wide audience of fans of the great Abruzzo winery. Citra produces it starting with a manual harvest of the bunches that have reached perfect ripeness. This is followed by a long period of maceration of the skins at a controlled temperature. When the fermentation phase is also definitively concluded, the wine obtained is left to rest in oak barrels, where it also undergoes the so-called malolactic conversion. The result is a wine characterized by a deep red colour with violet hues. The nose is dominated by fruit, with clear notes of blackberry and currant, to which pleasant spicy sensations of leather and pepper are added. In the mouth it is pleasantly harmonious, full-bodied, soft and well structured. If we really want to find a flaw... Let's just say it has a habit of always ending too soon. Better to be prepared and always have a second bottle available.

Codice Citra represents the largest community of winemakers in Abruzzo, bringing together 3,000 families united by their respect for nature. The headquarters, the impressive winery, is located in Ortona, in the province of Chieti. A few kilometres separate it from the sea. A few more from the foothills of the Apennines. There's another sea in between. It is the one represented by the many vineyards that neatly divide the surrounding countryside. Suffice it to say that there are about 6,000 hectares of vineyards belonging to Citra and that the winery has two bottling lines capable of producing 20,000 bottles of wine per hour. But these numbers should not scare you. Although big, and Codice Citra really is, this winery has never lost the taste (and pleasure) of making good wines. Deeply tied to their home territory, they have been a point of reference for the region for 45 years.
