Bisanzio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOP

Montepulciano is the second most grown grape in Italy (behind Sangiovese), and by far the most abundant in the hills surrounding the old city of Cheti in the region of Abruzzo. A major wine region of roughly 9,000 hectares, producing 86 million litres of wine per year.

The grape is named after a stunning town in Tuscany by the same name, yet confusingly Montepulciano town does not produce wine from this grape, instead famous for 'Vino Nobile de Montepucilano' made from Sangiovese!

Tasting Note

Intense red with light violet highlights. The nose has hints of mulberry and sour cherry, violet and spice. The palate is full bodied and well structured with smooth tannins with a pleasant and persistent finish. Pair with rich sauces, roasted game, and seasoned cheeses.

Since 1973 Codice Citra has produced wines that express the different terroirs and microclimates of the region. Citra wines are estate grown and bottled from a collection of family owned vineyards in the lush and various microclimates of Abruzzo’s Chieti province.  Passed down from generation to generation, these families maintain small vineyards, some with just one hectare, with passion and personal care. The vineyards’ finest grapes are handpicked and blended by world-renowned enologist, Riccardo Cotarella, to express the true beauty of Abruzzo.
