Galardi "Terra di Lavoro" is a wine of great structure and prestige. The blend of Aglianico (80%) and Piedirosso (20%) is aged in new oak barrels for twelve months. Since 1994, attention of experts and the public steadily grown. Enthusiastic ratings have come from Robert Parker, Daniel Thomases, James Suckling and Stephen Tanzer, along with kudos in Italy from Gambero Rosso, the Italian Sommelier Association, L'Espresso, Alessandro Masnaghetti , Luca Maroni and Luigi Veronelli, who has repeatedly ranked the Terra di Lavoro the best Italian wines ever.
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".
