Many of the wines on this list received so many points that after we added up the Italian points we lost track of the point count. But the point is: there are many fine wines here, lovingly collected, carefully stored, and now available at what are mostly very reasonable prices. And, as always, their condition is guaranteed.
A blend of Aglianico and Piedirosso grown in volcanic soils in the hills of northwestern Campania, Fattoria Galardi's Terra di Lavora (land of labor) is a intended to be a vin de garde. The wines seldom express overt fruit and tend towards the savory and mineral. Quite dark in the glass-nearly black-and still youthful appearing despite its age. Aromatically it is somewhat reticent, wild blackberry, smoke, plums, violets, graphite, loam, anise, and saddle leather reveal themselves with vigorous decanting. Initially on the palate the tannins are ripe, but still very much present. Over time more dark fruits emerge, leaning toward hedge fruits, along with savory sense of earthiness. There is a great deal of mineral complexity coiled within. The finish is quite long and savory. We'd decant for a few hours and serve with lamb ragu or dry-aged beef now or cellar for another 10-15 years for a detailed expression of the volcanic terroir to emerge. JCM
Fabulous elegant black and red fruits, hints of mint, great material and length. It will cellar well but can be drunk young with great pleasure. A fabulous buy in Grand Cru Burgundy!
