IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Laus Vitae represents the top of the quality pyramid for Codice Citra. Sourced from vines that average 40 years in age, and which grow at over 900 feet above sea level, the production of Laus Vitae is highly limited. 

About the Vineyard

Grapes are grown in high altitude vineyards, at 900+ feet above sea level, and on 40-year-old vines.  Winemaking process from vineyard to bottle led by world-renowned enologist Riccardo Cotarella.

Wine Production

Grapes are hand-selected and hand-harvested.  After soft pressing, a long maceration of the skins at a controlled temperature.  First refined in stainless steel vats and later in big oak barrels, until reaching a high structural complexity for further refinement in smaller barrels.

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied with a long, lingering finished.  Soft, yet firm and balanced tannins with notes of red fruit, mulberry, sour cherry preserve, and violet.  Hints of cocoa, black pepper, vanilla, nuts, and leather. 

Food Pairing

Complex and rich with layers of flavors, this wine pairs well with roasted red meats and game, pappardelle with boar, stuffed mushrooms, polenta with sausage, and aged cheeses, especially 5-8 year old Pecorino from Abruzzo.
