Amarone della Valpolicella is a rich, dry Italian red wine characterized by ripe, bold flavors. Directly after harvest, the grapes are air dried through a process called Òappassimento", which allows them to shrivel into raisins. This concentrates the sugar and flavors in the grapes, producing a distinctive and full-bodied wine well-suited to aging. It is often said that you can safely forget an Amarone in your wine cellar. Depending on the vintage and aging technique, wines of exceptional quality can be enjoyed up to 30-50 years after bottling.

In the 60s, Ferruccio Lamborghini spent time with Don Eduardo Miura, a breeder for Spanish fighting bulls. He was so inspired and impressed by the animals power, stability and determination, that he decided that the raging bull should be his car brands logo on the shield. It was also inspired by his zodiac sign, Taurus (the bull).

Ferruccio's 'Sangue di Miura' Amarone is extremely limited. It is characterised by brooding dark berry fruits, bold tannins, chocolate and coffee undertones and lingering warm finish. A big, bold wine that will cellar for 15+ years.
