DescriptionThe Citra family of stylishly-created Italian wines, widely admired for its enduring high quality and exceptional value, represents a reliable source of versatile, food-friendly varietal wines. As the single most important producer in Italy's picturesque coastal Abruzzi region and a leading Italian brand across America, Citra has built a reputation as a trusted producer of well-made, authentic Italian wines. The winemaking firm of Citra came into being in 1973 when 3,000 small growers scattered throughout the Abruzzi opted to band together to form a single wine cooperative. What they all shared in common was a commitment to win the national and international recognition they felt the wines of their region deserved. The fortitude, resourcefulness and conviction of the quality-minded Abruzzi growers who form Citra continue to make the Abruzzi winery a model of its kind.
