Weekly Wine – Citra

13 Nov

SONY DSCCitra Sangiovese Terredi Chieti
2012
Italy
750ml
13% ABV
$7.45 (LCBO)

I’ve had tasted this wine a long time ago and I remembered it. My memory recalled that it was not a very pleasant wine. It was not an enjoyable wine. It was a harsh wine.
My memory works well as it is all that above and more. I don’t remember it being watery – having a harsh flavour mixed with tepidness. Perhaps that’s just me.
This is a singular wine. A bold wine. A wine that that no doubt has its share of fans. It also will have its detractors.
I don’t like this wine. It is too harsh. It reminds me of the cheap table wine I was served when in Rome. That wine was virtually undrinkable unless you mixed it well with mineral water. This wine is better than that.
But I’m looking for the bottle of mineral water.
