2006 Fattoria Galardi "Terra Di Lavoro" Roccamonfina

SKU #1146031 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

Outer quote mark Today the 2006 Terra di Lavoro comes across as surprisingly accessible, but long-time connoisseurs know better; there is plenty of structure underneath. Readers are advised to taste this wine within the next few months and then forget about it for a minimum of several years. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2009)

Outer quote mark I love the wines from this family-owned wine estate in South Italy’s Campania. It’s been years since I last visited the small property, and I look forward to getting down there soon. I was lucky enough to drink a bottle of the 2006 Terra di Lavoro at a dinner in London’s Italian restaurant Zafferano a few weeks ago, and the red was superb quality, even though it was about $250 a bottle. It was worth every penny. It’s made from organically grown grapes: 80 percent Aglianico and 20 percent Piedirosso. It showed fresh aromas of herbs and dark fruits such as blackberries and brambleberries. It was minerally too with a volcanic ash undertone. It was full and silky with lots of fruit and a long intense finish. Beautiful now. Inner quote mark (6/2016)
