Fresh and bright fruit. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a racy finish. The almond, earth and stone undertones are fascinating. This needs two to three years of bottle age. Try in 2018.

Captivating aromas of black cherry, cocoa, graphite and sweet spices, subtle notes of dried flowers, and woodsmoke emerging with air. Sweet, plush and seamless; round and full, but with enticing inner-mouth perfume to the saline red berry, cherry and minerally flavors. Finishes very long and suave, with broad, polished tannins and a repeating graphite nuance. This is a beauty. An 80 percent Aglianico and 20 percent Piedirosso blend. - Ian D'Agata

The 2013 Terra di Lavoro is a headline bottling on the Campania winescape. It has inspired a large generation of enthusiastic younger vintners today, especially in the Roccamonfina subzone—one of the most exciting areas in the bustling and up-and-coming regions of Southern Italy. The effect here is seamless, deep and penetrating with healthy red fruit that is nicely enhanced by spice, leather and campfire ash. The integration and smoothness of the mouthfeel is impressive indeed. - Monica Larner

Winery

Fattoria Galardi

Galardi is a family-owned estate formed by four cousins in 1991. The territory covers a volcanic soil of great potential sloping down to the sea. With the family’s commitment to the transformation of the vineyard and cellar practices, the estate produced its first fruit with the harvest of 1993. The result is a wine that, despite its youth, was already showing on its debut all the expressive potential of a great wine. 1994 marks the definitive birth of “Terra di Lavoro".
