The Celani Family Vineyard's prestige wine Ardore is a Cabernet Sauvignon, matured in fine French oak barrels where the lees are allowed to settle to the bottom as the wine is filtered naturally by its own weight, and is never stripped of any of its fragrance and flavor. The grapes used to create Ardore come from the most respected farms in the Napa Valley.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a noble wine whose berry-fragrance and flavor is a famous mixture of currants and cassis. It ages beautifully in our new French oak barrels, in that ancient tradition interplay of time and tannin, to a deep, clear taste between medium and full-bodied that can only be described as classic Cabernet.
Deep and full-bodied, Tenacious is a proprietary red wine that is nearly as popular now as Cabernet Sauvignon, but with more softness and less tannin to please the plates of those who favor these traits. Estate-grown and bottled, Tenacious matures unfined and unfiltered for 22 months in new French Oak. You will not see "Reserve" on the label of this wine because it was built to be enjoyed today.
The 2013 Celani Family Chardonnay is sourced from Hudson Vineyards which lies in Napa Valley's Carneros District, one of the finest growing regions in the world. The cooling breezes off the Bay of San Francisco allow the grapes a longer hang time in which to develop flavor and intensity, without sacrificing acidity and true balance.
