Citra Pinot Noir 1.5L 2009    
Sku: 11344

Tasting Notes
Rich notes of wild berries, raspberry, currant and almond. Round and balanced, with soft, appealing tannins and a persistent finish. A perfect accompaniment to grilled meats, rich pasta dishes and vegetarian entrees.

Winemaker's Notes
Citra is one of Italy’s foremost wine producers. The Abruzzo region on central Italy’s eastern coast is a relatively unspoiled landscape perfect for grapevines which have thrived for over a millennia.

The winery itself is the fruit of over 7000 small growers who banded together in 1973 to produce wine collectively from their vineyards. Not content to simply throw all of their grapes together in giant tanks and be satisfied with mediocre quality wines, these forward thinking farmers sacrificed their short-term gain.

They reinvested the benefits, sometimes going so far as to supplement them from their own personal savings, to create a first-rate, impressively modern winery. These men and women were firm believers in the potential of the wines of Abruzzi.

Their commitment to success has paid off. Other growers soon took notice, and their number has grown to over 10,000 making Citra the leading winery of Abruzzo. The wines have proven themselves on the international market, the true test of a wine’s worth. They have a reputation for consistently producing honest, well-made wines.

Grapes for this Pinot Noir are picked by hand and partially de-stalked. The must ferments together with skins in stainless steel for 8-10 days with a maceration period of 8-10 days and daily pump-over. Following malolactic fermentation and a period in stainless steel, the wine matures in barriques for 2-3 months.
