Galardi is another property that has come along in recent years with a series of stunning wines. Under the guidance of oenologist Riccardo Cotarella, the estate's Terra di Lavoro (80% Aglianico, 20% Piedirosso) has quickly established itself as one of Italys top cult wines, and with good reason, as it is consistently outstanding and often profound. At its best Terra di Lavoro offers extraordinary expression of these two ancient varieties and the volcanic soils on which they are grown.

The 2005 Terra di Lavoro is a beauty. This massively structured, imposing blend of 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso bursts from the glass with a compelling array of smoke, ash, graphite, underbrush and black cherries. Layered, sweet and powerful, it reveals notable depth as well as persistence. While it is not profound as is the 2004, it will likely come around sooner. That is of course in relative terms given that Terra di Lavoro has proven to be a very slow-maturing wine. 93 points
