Campoleone 2005 - Lamborghini

Campoleone 2005 - Lamborghini


This 50-50 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot is one of the best red wines produced in Umbria. The Lamborghini family (of automotive fame) delivers a plush, modern- and yes, racy- red with dark concentration and generous tones of ripe cherry, vanilla and sweet spice. It has a chewy, plush feel in the mouth with bright freshness on the close.”- 93 Points – Wine Enthusiast “The estate’s top bottling, the 2005 Campoleone, is a cuvee of equal parts Sangiovese and Merlot that spent 12 months in French oak. A full-bodied, racy red, the wine possesses compelling layers of dark cherries, licorice, mint, tobacco, sweet herbs and French oak in an elegant, beautifully balanced style. Today the wine comes across as quite primary, but it should develop nicely with time in the bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.“- 92 Points – Antonio Galloni – Wine Advocate “Aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, soft, claylike minerals and flowers follow through to a silky, full-bodied palate, with quiet intensity and good length. Tannic and a little austere now. Best after 2011. 2,300 cases made.”- 90 Points – Wine Spectator
