Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 98
Wine Spectator
Black color. Fabulous nose of crushed blackberry, mineral and black licorice. Full-bodied, with an amazing texture. Like cashmere. Wonderful fruit as well. Everything is here. What a wine. Needs time. Still the best wine ever from here by a long way.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2010.
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Yes, as you may have guessed, this 79-acre estate is owned by a member of the luxury car manufacturer. Made with Riccardo Cotarella's consultation, this 1997 is a blend of roughly equal portions of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese. Picked at high sugars, vinified dry, aged 12 months in new French oak, and bottled with neither fining nor filtration, it is a tour de force in wine-making. Unbelievable concentration combined with uncanny balance and symmetry, as well as a staggering bouquet, flavor depth, and length, make for one of the most extraordinary wine tasting experiences of 1999. The color is a saturated purple. Bursting with black fruits, spice, minerals, and character, this is a prodigious, fabulously intense wine that must be tasted to be believed.

Lamborghini, Campania, Italy
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

Campania

View all wine

A winemaking renaissance is underfoot in Campania as more and more small, artisan and family-run wineries redefine their style with vineyard improvements and cellar upgrades. The region boasts a cool Mediterranean climate with extreme coastal, as well as high elevation mountain terroirs. It is cooler than one might expect in Campania; the region usually sees some of the last harvest dates in Italy.

Just south of Mount Vesuvio, the volcanic and sandy soils create aromatic and fresh reds based on Piedirosso and whites, made from Coda di Volpe and Falanghina. Both reds and whites go by the name, Lacryma Christi, meaning the "tears of Christ." South of Mount Vesuvio, along the Amalfi Coast, the white varieties of Falanghina and Biancolella make fresh, flirty, mineral-driven whites, and the red Piedirosso and Sciasinoso vines, which cling to steeply terraced coastlines, make snappy and ripe red wines.

Farther inland, as hills become mountains, the limestone soil of Irpinia supports the whites Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina and Greco di Tufo as well as the most-respected red of the south, Aglianico. Here the best and most age-worthy examples come from Taurasi.

Farther north and inland near the city of Benevento, the Taburno region also produces Aglianico of note—called Aglianico del Taburno—on alluvial soils. While not boasting the same heft as Taurasi, these are also reliable components of any cellar.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
