Description

Founded in 1977, Signorello Estate has preserved a legacy of creating estate-driven wines with power and finesse. Despite the devastation suffered in the fires of 2017, Signorello has remained unequivocally focused on rebuilding and shaping the legacy of this unique estate. Known for their complex, structured blends, Signorello presents an enthralling wine for Premiere Napa Valley 2023 that highlights the beautiful singularity that sets its story apart. Sourced from the oldest block on the estate, originally planted in 1990, this wine is a single barrel selection of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2021 vintage. In its re-emergence, a dynamic team led by winemaker Priyanka French and guided meticulously by consultants Celia Welch and Steve Matthiasson have crafted this beautiful wine using organic, sustainable farming in the estate vineyards and precision winemaking methods in the cellar. Complex and concentrated, this wine is indicative of our special micro-terroir, rooted in the cooler climate of the southern corner of Napa Valley. Your wine is aging in French oak for 22 months, bringing richness and harmony and bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve its natural, enthralling character.
