Delicious now, but will age effortlessly over the next 30 years. This 100% Celani Family Estate Merlot offers bright aromas of red and purple fruits, pencil lead, chocolate, crushed rocks and creme de cassis. Hints of violets, tobacco, roasted nuts and fresh wildflowers fill out this wine's aromatic profile. Lively and fresh on the palate this medium to full-bodied wine possesses supple tannins and a pleasantly long finish.
The Ardore is made of a meticulous selection of 10 barrels from the most exceptional vineyard sources of Cabernet Sauvignon available. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels, Ardore is never fined nor filtered.
Food Pairing : Port Wine Braised Beef Short Ribs.Simple Meatballs. Roasted Duck Breast with Pecan Purée. Cabernet-Braised Venison Cheek.
