Bigger Than Your Head – August 20, 2019 (USA press reviews/mentions)

In “Wine of the Day, No. 521,” Fredric Koeppel highlights a wine that is both drinkable and affordable for his readers. His wine of the day and review is as follows:

CITRA Sangiovese Terre di Chieti 2017

“Displays a dark ruby-brick red hue and pure, intense aromas typical of the grape: Sour cherry and cranberry; a touch of cloves and orange rind; black tea and hillside herbs. These elements segue seamlessly onto the palate, where the wine offers a well-balanced sequence of acidity, black fruit flavors, moderate tannins and a finish furnished with a hint of graphite minerality; altogether this little wine reveals not just a pleasing personality but real presence.”
