Established 1960

The estate was bought by Ferruccio Lamborghini in the late 60s, who, traveling in these areas, fell in love with the harsh and sweet landscape at the same time. Abandoned the famous car business decided to return to its origins: agriculture. The total area is 100 hectares, divided between a 9-hole golf course, a farm and the wine area of ​​32 hectares. Initially several red and white berry varieties were planted: in addition to the classic Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo, it was also decided for more unusual varieties for those years, such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In the mid-90s Patrizia Lamborghini took over management, continuing and even strengthening the father's ambition to produce high quality wines. Since then, most of the vineyards have been replanted, eliminating the white grape varieties and preferring Sangiovese and Merlot. Currently the new vineyards with a high density of selected clones extend over 20 hectares. The extreme search for quality and the desire to highlight the characteristics of the territory have meant that, starting from 1997, the production, from the management of the vineyards to the winemaking, underwent a radical change that generated red wines of the highest quality level.
