Winemaker Notes

The family owned Galardi estate produces just one wine and it does so with perfection. Located onvolcanic slopes in northwestern Campania, the vineyards are nestled among chestnut groves andbenefit from Mediterranean Sea breezes. Terra di Lavoro actually means "land of work" in Italian, aname that has historical roots, but also accurately reflects the difficult volcanic soil compositionwhich results in very low yields. In this challenging environment, Aglianico and its supporting grapePiedirosso produce wines of incredible depth, complexity and elegance.

The wine is deep purple in color with smoky, earthy aromas and hints of tobacco and graphite.Notes of ripe black cherries, cassis, tobacco and leather come through on the palate of this big- structured, full-bodied wine. This iconic wine pairs beautifully with Italian or French pot roasts, filetmignon or aged cuts of beef.

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

The family-owned Galardi estate produces just one wine and it does so with perfection. Located on volcanic slopes in northwestern Campania, the vineyards are nestled among chestnut groves and benefit from Mediterranean Sea breezes. Terra di Lavoro actually means “land of work” in Italian, a name that has historical roots, but also accurately reflects the difficult volcanic soil composition which results in very low yields. In this challenging environment, Aglianico and its supporting grape Piedirosso produce wines of incredible depth, complexity and elegance.

Galardi is both concept and wine born out of the collective energy and shared vision of four cousins. Terro di Lavoro expresses the natural environment of Campania without parallel. The winery, named for the localita (area) Galardi, was created from scratch in 1991 when four cousins decided to produce wine from what was then a scant 0.5 hectare plot belonging to the family. The cousins, Maria Lusia Murena, Arturo and Dora Celentano, and Francesco Castello, shared a vision for producing a world class wine from Roccamonfina, an extinct volcano, 100 kilometers north and west of Campania's traditional quality zone of Taurasi. In 1993, the group requested the assistance of winemaking consultant Riccardo Cotarella, who had already achieved fame for his work with another Campanian estate: Montevetrano. The old rootstock was grafted over to high-quality cuttings of Aglianico and Piedirosso and in 1994, 600 bottles were produced and Galardi was born.
