A couple of weeks ago, our eagerness to traverse the back roads of wine country was awarded in spades. We came across an elegant yet powerful, beautifully-integrated wine, a wine whose gorgeous attributes unfold layer by later on the palate, a wine that reveals its roots while at the same time flagrantly displaying its abundant fruit. This magnificent treasure is a testament to the viticultural bounty of Italy. Make room in your cellar for the great wines that are found in the south, and start with today's Buy the Pair, the 2014 Galardi "Terra di Lavoro" Roccamonfina IGT!!

The family-owned Galardi estate is located in the region of Campania. The Galardis produce only one wine on their estate, choosing to eschew DOCG status and bending the rules in favor of a wine that is a unique and powerful expression the region's terroir as well as the native Aglianico and Piedirosso varietals. Aglianico and Piedirosso complement each other perfectly; while the former contributes depth, concentration, firm structure and high acidity, the latter offers plush fruit characters and soft tannins. Both grapes thrive in the region's volcanic soil and beautifully reveal a sense of place in the finished wine.

The 2014 "Terra di Lavoro", a blend of 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso, is stainless-steel fermented and aged for 12 months in a combination of new and seasoned oak barrels. It is deep purple in color with smoky, earthy aromas and seductive hints of tobacco and graphite. Notes of ripe black cherries, cassis, tobacco and leather come through on the palate of this big-structured, full-bodied wine. (importer notes) Check out the press!

94 points, James Suckling:
"Lots of blackberry, dark-chocolate and sweet-tobacco-leaf character on the nose. Fruit and plenty of licorice to boot. This continues to evolve in the class. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. More approachable than many vintages" (November 22, 2016)

The "Terra di Lavoro" is a stylish reminder that southern Italy has wines that are on par with the great wines of Piedmont, Tuscany and the Veneto. It is guaranteed to make you a fan of the wines of Campania. CHEERS!
