Citra - Chardonnay Terre di Chieti 2019
Terroir: Codice Citra sits on 6,000 hectares of wide territory that covers almost the entire province of Chieti, with a north-to-south extension of 80-90km, and for 40km from the sea to inland. It is a privileged spot where grapes ripen among Majella, Gran Sasso and the Adriatic Sea: a unique chance to exploit different and unique terroirs and microclimates, with the ideal temperature range for the ripening of grapes. Mountain airstreams and sea breeze grapes acquire different chemical and aromatic characteristics that are fundamental to the production of Citra's distinctive wines.
Vinification: Hand-harvested grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks with a long maceration at a controlled temperature. The must is frequently pumped over to intensify the aromatics and the color. The wine is then finished in stainless steel tanks.
