Ferruccio Lamborghini purchased the property in 1968 during a holiday in Umbria
The Lamborghini estate lies between the south side of the Trasimeno lake and the beautiful medieval village of Panicale. Situated on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, Cortona and the Chiana valley are only few kms. away from the estate.
The property was purchased at the end of the 60's by Ferruccio Lamborghini who, travelling in this area, fell in love with the softrolling hills landscape.
After his retirement from the famous car manufacturing activity he decided to go back to his roots: being a farmer.
The total area is 100 hectares divided between a 9 holes golf course, an agriturismo and 32 hectares of vineyards.
He started to plant different grape varieties both red and white; beyond the traditional Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo the choice went also to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, unusual varieties at that early stage.
In the middle of the 90's Patrizia Lamborghini succeeded in the management of the estate pursuing, and even strengthening that ambition of making quality wines that her father had in the past.
Since then the greater part of the vineyards has been replanted removing the white plants and preferring Sangiovese and Merlot.
At the present the new vineyards extend for a total area of 20 hectares but future plans foresee the replanting of the entire vineyard area implementing the modern philosophy of high density planting with selected clones.
The extreme search for quality and the will to evidence the characteristics of the territory allowed, in 1997, the beginning of a dramatic improvement regarding both the management of the vineyards and the wine making conduction. The result of these efforts brought forth very high standard modern red wines
