Tasting Notes

"I am thrilled with the 2006 Terra di Lavoro, which easily lives up to the praise I bestowed upon it last year. This wasn’t an easy vintage for Galardi. The weather was uneven, and a drastic selection was necessary in the cellar. Overall production was even lower in 2006 than in 2005, but the estate’s commitment to quality paid off in a big way. The 2006 Terra di Lavoro presents an intriguing combination of compelling inner sweetness wrapped around a firm, imposing frame. This is a very Barolo-like Terra di Lavoro that gradually opens up to reveal is pedigree, with endless layers of fruit and an eternal finish. Readers who own the 2006 are fortunate, but significant patience is required. This is a majestic Terra di Lavoro. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036."

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.
