Riccardo Cotarella, nicknamed "the Wizard," is the winemaker of the moment both at home in Italy and, believe it or not, in France. Cotarella's portfolio as an enologist includes some of the hottest new Italian stars: Campoleone, from Lamborghini in Umbria.

2012 Campoleone Rosso Umbria IGT – Score 93
Aromas of stones, mineral and dark fruits follow through to a full body, firm yet silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Better in two or three years when it softens: Try in 2017.

2010 Campoleone Rosso Umbria IGT – 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. Needs at least two or three years to soften but try decanting it a couple hours before if you like vibrant fruit. Made from half sangiovese and half merlot.

2010 Torami Rosso Umbria IGT – Score 91
A generous blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and montepulciano. It’s full-bodied, with round, silky tannins and lots of juicy fruit. Chocolate shavings as well in the aftertaste. Better in 2015 but so delicious now.

2010 Campoleone Rosso Umbria IGT – Score 94
The 2010 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. Drink: 2015-2024.
