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.
“Great value at this price point. Aromas of red cherry, along with hints of earth and spice. Medium-bodied, with light tannins, and medium acidity on the palate, along with bright berry notes and a dry finish.”

The property, with its 6,000 hectares—14,800 acres—covers the majority of the Chieti province. Since its foundation, Codice Citra has focused on cultivating the most important, indigenous grape varieties within the province of Chieti.
