Critera is a dry, rich, vivacious red wine.
Young and fresh, it is made from 15-year-old vines. Grapes are picked up by hands and gently laid down into little airy crates and then aged at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. An irresistible wine whose elegance draws you into it with extraordinary scents.
Pleasantly fresh, this wine gives off lively tannins with a long, heady finish. Critera is made from Primitivo grapes from Salento. Frankly speaking, it is southern Italy in a glass.
