Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 94 Points
An Italian icon, the Galardi 2017 Terra di Lavoro draws its fruit from 400 meters in altitude, where nighttime temperatures are cool. This makes all the difference in a hot vintage such as 2017. The wine is very nice in appearance and intensity, with lots of dark, savory fruit, tobacco and spice. You will also find some scorched earth in there if you dig a bit. This blend of 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso was a release of 24,500 bottles.

Antonio Galloni: 95 Points
"The 2017 Terra di Lavoro is wonderfully seductive in its youthful state, wafting up from the glass effortlessly, with a bouquet that mixes wild blueberries and black raspberries with sweet lavender, violet florals, and smoky spiced citrus. The 2017 takes hold of the palate with salty minerality, but not before coating everything it touches with luxurious, velvety textures, cascading ripe black fruits across the senses, and leaving a purple floral tinge. Grippy tannins frame the long and dramatic finish, resonating on dark fruits, savory spice, and lingering florals. There is really so much going on here that itís hard to focus on just one thing; but if nothing else, itís the salty grip of the 2017 Terra di Lavoro that boggles the mind, brimming up over the wine's intense dark fruit. Lose this for a decade in the cellar and marvel once itís unearthed."-Antonio Galloni

James Suckling: 96 Points
"96 out of 100 ... Thereís a unique floral and herbal edge to this, in the form of peppercorns, aniseed, licorice and five spice; wait for this to open up in the glass (decanting suggested), and along comes a cohort of dark fruit in the form of dark plums, mulberries and blackcurrants. Dense and flavorful, yet wild and pretty tannins envelop the mouth, coating layers of dark fruit and painting them in colorful hues. Itís full-bodied and full-throttle, but its beauty is understated and the acidity and fruit are playful and subtle. Drink from 2026." - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
