Codice Citra was founded in 1973 when 3,000 small family growers decided to unite to form a winery dedicated to quality. 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.
About the Vineyard
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 world-renowned enologist Riccardo Cotarella.
After light crushing and pressing of hand-harvested grapes, the must undergoes a long fermentation at a controlled temperature.
Crisp and elegant with enticing aromas of stone fruit, lime, and Pinto Grigio’s classic bitter-almond finish, Citra Pinot Grigio is delightfully well-balanced.
Elegant and well-balanced, this wine can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or pairs beautifully with sushi, cooked fish, white meats, and soufflé.
