Fireworks and raucous events have been used to mark the apex of Italy?s August celebration since Roman Times. On August 15, Ferragosto, gather some of your closest friends and family in Capelle sul Tavo, a small inland town that knows good food, fantastic wine, and a wild nighttime celebration. Head to the highest point in the city, where views of the river Tavo reach the sea and celebrate the evening with Citra?s Montepulciano d?Abruzzo, equal parts celebratory and fiery. The townspeople will march through the ancient streets with religious effigies that will soon alight with the clamor of firecrackers and fireworks. If you?ve chosen the right spot, you?ll be able to see nearby towns celebrating as well. Chin chin again (though we can?t guarantee you?ll hear the clink of your glasses).
The top of the tier from the largest co-op winery in Abruzzo, Codice Citra, the brand name means ?Praise to Life? in Latin. This is ripe and warming on the nose, displaying a wealth of dark cherry and blackberry supported by cocoa and allspice. It's well mannered and plush on the palate, yet still maintains structure from a dusting of well-knit tannins and a burst of juicy acidity.?ALEXANDER PEARTREE
