2017 Celesti - Bodegas Cieli

The Cieli Estate

- Established in 2012, Ron is a one-man-show. While he doesn't own his own grapes, his oversight of the rows he sources from is very hands-on, and he vinifies everything personally.

- All wines, (except Dolchezza Seco) are aged for 12 months in either 1st or second use American oak barrels.

- Since he insists on having the highest level of attention to detail in the wines he makes and in using only the best grapes, his production is limited to what he can make himself. - He gets his grapes from three sources:

- A few select rows of 20-year-old vineyard sites near the valley floor of Valle de Guadalupe.

- Vines in a low elevation vineyard in Valle de San Vicente very close to the Pacific.

- 75 + year old vines in a vineyard at 3,500ft in Ojos Negros - organically farmed.

Total production: 6 wines, 750 cases

2017 Celesti - Bodegas Cieli

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    Like the rest of Cieli's 2017's, this wine displays a 'barnyard' characteristic common in well-aged wines from Bordeaux and Chateauneuf du Pape that plays over top the characteristics of the fruit. Here the brighter spicier notes originating from the Sangiovese, find a home in the deeper richer tones of the Nebbiolo. Full bodied and structured this is a wine to pair with a substantial meal.

    Only 50 cases made
