The 2012 Celani Siglo is 100% Merlot made, a selection from the Celani Family Estate Vineyard. After pressing to 30% new oak, the wine continued malolactic fermentation in barrel, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. The 2012 Siglo is extremely aromatic with huge expressions of bright, lush black raspberries, juicy plums, dark chocolate and rhubarb. Subtle notes of orange peel, wet rock and pencil lead add further compliment. In the mouth, are richly concentrated flavors of candied black and red raspberries, black cherries and roasted black berries. The powerful flavors are beautifully integrated with lush, velvety tannins resulting in a luscious seamless quality. The 2012 Celani Siglo will drink amazingly well over the next 10 years.
