Description

Founded in 1975 by Francesco Gettuli, Citari has grown thanks to the love and passion passed on from founder to daughter. Giovanna continues to manage the estate alongside her husband and children.

“Years ago, when we were working in one of our vineyards, some fossil shells – embedded in stones and rocks – came to light: a characteristic that we decided to recall in the name of this Lugana (“conchiglia” = “shell”), a wine that is “historic” for us because it was the first that we produced.”

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Diplomi eco certified (environmental value certificate)

The Citari vineyards cover 25 hectares of gentle, south-facing glacial slopes. The mild climate and the terroir of Lake Garda create the most favourable microclimate for the perfect, traditional maturation of the grapes. The limited size of the vineyards, the harvesting entirely by hand, the careful selection of the bunches and the most modern cellar techniques all combine to enhance the peculiar characteristics of these wines, especially their structure and intense, fruity aromas. Soil: Moraine with calcareous clay, rich in mineral salts and fossils. Vines per hectare: 5800 n/ha. Harvest: end of September – early October. Manually picked vines from 25- 30 years old into boxes and several rounds. Vinification in stainless steel. Ageing: In steel for seven months, of which about six on fine lees.

Decanter Magazine

Grapefruit pith and light honey aromas, very steely and direct. This is weighty with viscous intensity, an easy-drinking summer wine. Ripe and vibrant on the finish. Drink 2024-2027. Highly recommended, 90 Points, April 2024

Food Pairing

Tasting appetiser, it pairs beautifully fine and delicate dishes such as Oysters and fish. It also goes well with antipasti and fresh cheeses.
