The best bottles under $12/ Lighter, elegant red: Cavit Pinot Noir, Italy.
The 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 7,000 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.

Estate-bottled Bottega Vinaia is the outcome of a vision by lead winemaker Anselmo Martini at the widely recognized Cavit winery. Starting in the early 1990s, Martini sought to explore the optimum potential of a handful of extraordinary vineyards in northern Italy’s Trentino region that, year after year, consistently produce the highest quality grapes. This select group of family-farmed vineyards is the source of Bottega Vinaia, an exceptional line of artisan wines that reflects the authentic qualities of the Trentino terroir. Thanks to Anselmo Martini’s passion and tireless drive, Bottega Vinaia has swiftly joined the ranks of Italy’s top-notch premium wine producers. Production Area Trentino, Italy Grapes are grown in the dry and calcareous soils of the Valle dei Laghi (Valley of Lakes), near the village of Toblino. Only hillside vineyards are used for optimal exposure. Grape Varieties 100% Pinot Noir Vinification After a traditional fermentation, the juice macerates for eight days to extract color and body from the skins. Malolactic fermentation is then carried out in wood for increased aromatics. The wine is then refined for a further six months with a light use of oak. Only two-year old large tonneau (500 L) French oak is used. Color Ruby red, with brick red nuances Bouquet Wide aromatic spectrum exalts cherry, sour cherry, cooked plum and tones of spices and tobacco Taste Velvety, harmonious and well balanced with excellent structure. With age it evolves in roundness, fullness and complexity Serving Suggestions Pairs well with both white and red meats. Serve at a cool room temperature.

Pinot Noir - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ This has great complexity on the nose with semblances of Pommard; cranberry and raspberry leaf are followed by a taut, red cherry and cranberry palate that has a surfeit of tension and poise. Top-class.
