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 palates of those who favor these traits.
Chardonnay, the world’s favorite dry white wine, tastes of fruit and then the fruitwood behind it. It is a balance somewhere between apple and oak, the brown barrel growing golden with wine. One of the most regal of all the white wines, it can still seem so much a part of the earth it comes from – an overgrown orchard’s abandoned arbors, lost empty vineyards’ wild ungathered grapes.
