    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Merlot/Sangiovese blend has an extraordinary perfume of saddle leather, smoke, cassis, prunes, and plums. A rich full-bodied, voluptuously-textured wine, with layers of concentrated fruit and sweet tannins. A magnificent seamlessness with a huge, explosive long finish. It is a wine of great stature as well as intensity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark cherries, smoke, licorice and earthiness are some of the nuances that emerge from 2006 Campoleone, a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that spent 12 months in French oak. This is a decidedly dark, brooding red from Lamborghini. As good as it is, I can’t help feeling that the wine is trapped by excessive concentration and new oak. With a lighter touch this could be a truly important, benchmark wine for Umbria. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.

    The Wine Advocate

    Displays blackberry jam on the nose, with prune and dried flowers. Full and silky, with blueberry flavors, firm tannins and bright acidity. A subtle red, with pretty fruit and structure and a fruity finish. Best after 2010. 3,000 cases made.
