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.
My Notes:

About Lamborghini:

The vineyard. is situated in Umbria, on lake Trasimeno. Today this region is very well considered in the international market for its viticulture vacation. Aniong the traditional grapes of the area, Sangiovese, Gamay and Ciliegiolo. he decided to specialize in planting international grapes like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon as a considerable choice for the future. Front then many changes and investments have been made in order to develop the vineyards. With the building of the wine cellars in 1975 started the commercializing of the wines. Today the specialized development of the lands with its vineyards extends for over 32 hectares which 7 have been newly sown. The harvest 1997 was the beginning of a dramatic improvement of "La Fiorita " both regarding the management of the vineyards and the development of the wines. With the collaboration with Dr Riccardo Cotarella and the drastic reduction of the grapes we are now achieving our quality ambition. With our new interest in wine making we have obtained 2 new red wines: Trescone and Campoleone
