Citra Terre di Chieti Merlot 2017 Review

Pizza party? Art opening? Rage-r? Roof top? BBQ? Are you planning any of these? Looking for a workhorse wine that doesn’t suck and says Merlot on the label and is actually all Merlot? Citra from Abbruzzo is your answer. No need to go into descriptors here, it’s juicy with just the right amount of tannin and a nice 13% alcohol so no one will fall down with a purple grill after a few glasses. OH! And it’s screw cap and $8 (less in some places). This wine is ready to do the work for you so you can mingle and be the host/ess with the most/ess.
