Following the malolactic fermentation, completely taking place in new french barrique, the wine was allowed to rest another twelve months in the same barrique, keeping the two varieties completely separate. Following this period of aging in barrique, the cuvee was assembled, the wine bottled and allowed to rest another six months in the cellar.

Wine Advocate

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.

Score: 91. —Antonio Galloni, June 2010.

Wine Spectator

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.

Score: 90. —James Suckling, November 15, 2009.
