Winemaker Notes

Deep purple in color, smoky aromas of earth and black fruits complement undertones of tobacco and graphite. On the palate, the wine is expressive and rich with ripe tannins and integrated alcohol.

Pair this wine with grilled ribeye steaks, duxelles, Chateaubriands, or farsumagru.

James Suckling
A tangy and fresh Terra di Lavoro with some clove and spice character. Hot stone and ripe fruit here. This is very tight and chewy. 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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2013 Terra di Lavoro shows pretty tertiary definition with lots of licorice, smoke, tar and resin. The primary fruit has faded to the background, leaving behind a very direct and linear style with integrated tannins and a long, glossy texture. The wine's color now has a bit of brick at the rim, and the quality of the aromas has evolved and softened with time. Given the pace of the wine's evolution, I am shortening the drinking window by just a couple of years since the last time I tasted this wine in 2017. Some 30,000 bottles were made.

Wine Spectator
A sculpted red, with sleek tannins framing the fresh profile of crushed black currant, smoky mineral, dried fig, graphite and spice box. Dense and finely balanced, this should show well with at least a few years in the cellar. Aglianico and Piedrosso. Best from 2019 through 2026. 2,750 cases made.

Galardi Winery Video

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.

Italian Red Wine

While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure for its red wines. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau (Grenache), Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
