Winemaker Notes

Deep, luminous ruby red. Blackberry jam and blueberries with intense notes of cherries in brandy, carob and rose petals enhanced by licorice and chocolate notes. Distinct creaminess on the palate, along with very powerful, mellow fruit. Long and persistent finish with defined tannins of rare finesse and elegance.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator

A rich red, juicy and aromatic, with plush tannins and a ripe mix of raspberry coulis, mocha, star anise and singed orange peel. Bright, offering a spicy, mineral-laced finish.

Tenute Lunelli, Italy
In 2001, fascinated by the ancient and mystical land of Umbria and by the powerful Sagrantino wines, the Lunelli family acquired Tenuta Castelbuono. With this aspiring project, the Lunellis continue the tradition of excellence they have achieved with Ferrari sparkling wine.

The winery is a realization of sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro and the technical expertise of architect Giorgio Pedrotti. The huge dome covered with copper, marked with a pattern of grooves and cracks, is inspired by a carapace, a tortoise shell. An accompanying sculptural element in the shape of a red arrow (called the Lampante) piercing the earth highlights the structure in the surrounding landscape.

The Castelbuono property encompasses 30 hectares of vineyards in the areas of Bevagna and Montefalco. Since acquiring the property, the Lunellis have focused on converting the vineyards to organic agriculture.

A land-locked area in the heart of Italy, Umbria has a similar climate and geography to Tuscany, with cold, rainy winters and dry sun-filled summers. An exception is the area surrounding Lake Trasimeno and Lake Bolsena, where a mild, Mediterranean microclimate dominates.

Third generation Lunelli family - Marcello, Matteo, Camilla, and Alessandro - have poured their passion into Tenute Lunelli at the same level they do for Ferrari Trento DOC. The family is committed to increasing awareness for the outstanding wines of Umbria.

Italian Red Wine

While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure for its red wines. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau (Grenache), Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
