Wine by Lamborghini: Campoleone Umbria Rosso with Wooden Gift Box (1500ml)
SCORE 95 - "This reminds me of the stupendous 1997 with fabulous aromas of ripe, dark fruits, spices and milk chocolate. Loads of currants, too, but also a wonderful floral character. It’s full-bodied, with super-velvety tannins and a lots of ripe fruits. It goes on for minutes." - James Suckling
Includes Lamborghini Branded Wood Box
"The Campoleone is the best I have tasted thus far. This blended Umbrian red (50-50 Sangiovese and Merlot) opens with an inky black color and extreme elegance that hits at the very core. Shapely fruit tones of blackberry and dried cherry are enhanced by balsam herb, licorice, sweet spice, tobacco, forest floor and flower potpourri. The close is soft, long lasting and ripe. I look forward to revisiting this wine in six or seven years when it has completed its evolution." - Score 94 (The Wine Advocate)

About Ferruccio Lamborghini
Ferruccio Lamborghini was an Italian industrialist. In 1963, he created Automobili Lamborghini, a maker of high-end sports cars in Sant'Agata Bolognese. He went to build the very first super car in the world.
Born to grape farmers in Renazzo, from the comune of Cento in the Emilia-Romagna region, his mechanical know-how led him to enter the business of tractor manufacturing in 1948, when he founded Lamborghini Trattori, which quickly became an important manufacturer of agricultural equipment in the midst of Italy's post-WWII economic boom. In 1959, he opened an oil heater factory, Lamborghini Bruciatori, which later entered the business of producing air conditioning equipment.
Lamborghini founded a fourth company, Lamborghini Oleodinamica in 1969 after creating Automobili Lamborghini in 1963. Lamborghini sold off many of his interests by the late 1970s and retired to an estate in Umbria, where he pursued winemaking.
