Tasting Notes

“From a ten hectare vineyard, the 2012 Roccamonfina Terra di Lavoro touches on many of the glory points that made this such an important cult wine for Campania. Although 2012 was a hot vintage, this wine shows an impressive sense of balance and elegance. This is especially apparent on the nose where it delivers blasts of dark fruit, balsam herb, tar, licorice and volcanic ash with meticulous precision. The fruit is layered, soft and ripe. In fact, the mouthfeel is the wine's best asset. Its fine tannins offer enormous structure, but they are soft and yielding at the same time. This is an open and honest expression of Aglianico (80%) and Piedirosso that has only just begun its long evolution.” - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, April 2015

The Producer

Galardi

Galardi, a family-owned estate, stands out in a league of its own. It was founded in 1991, and they specialize in crafting a single wine of almost unparalleled perfection. Situated in an idyllic location characterized by volcanic, sloping soils in the northwestern part of Italy's Campania region, Galardi benefits from the influence of the Mediterranean Ocean's breezes and the exceptional soil composition, which makes the cultivation of native grape varieties like Aglianico and Piedirosso almost second nature. While these unique soils impart distinctive flavours to the wine, they also result in incredibly low yields. As a result, only a few thousand bottles of Galardi's flagship wine, Terra di Lavoro, are produced each year, causing both its quality and price to soar.
