Galardi’s 2008 Terra di Lavoro is a legend in the making. It is a fabulously ripe, rich and seductive wine endowed with beautifully articulated dark plums, ash, leather, licorice, all of which meld together in an explosive, utterly thrilling display of class and elegance. Clean, mineral notes frame the eternal finish. Today the 2008 is impossibly young and the wine will require considerable patience, but its class, pedigree and potential are all first-rate. Simply put, the 2008 is a monumental Terra di Lavoro. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG) 97+
Terra di Lavoro (a blend of Aglianico and Piedirosso) is packaged in a handsome bottle and opens with inky, dark richness. The well concentrated wine is redolent of espresso bean, rum cake, chocolate, leather and moist pipe tobacco. The sweet tannins are very astringent still so give this wine time to soften.
Very dark lustrous crimson. Ripe, confident, sweet, just this side of treacle but with a tannic spine. Really interesting. Youthful but well constituted. (JR)
A ripe, dark red, featuring overtones of licorice and mint to the dark plum and boysenberry notes. Fine tannins frame the finish, which lingers with an ash aftertaste. Aglianico and Piedirosso. (NW, Web-2011)
