Wine AdvocateFattoria Galardi and consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella have conspired to create a beautiful wine in this classic vintage. The 2013 Terra di Lavoro is a headline bottling on the Campania winescape. It has inspired a large generation of enthusiastic younger vintners today, especially in the Roccamonfina subzone-one of the most exciting areas in the bustling and up-and-coming regions of Southern Italy. The effect here is seamless, deep and penetrating with healthy red fruit that is nicely enhanced by spice, leather and campfire ash. The integration and smoothness of the mouthfeel is impressive indeed.

Wine SpectatorA sculpted red, with sleek tannins framing the fresh profile of crushed black currant, smoky mineral, dried fig, graphite and spice box. Dense and finely balanced, this should show well with at least a few years in the cellar. Aglianico and Piedrosso. Best from 2019 through 2026. 2,750 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, prune, tobacco, earth and Asian spice float out of the glass. The subdued but refined palate offers mature plum, blackberry, cocoa and cinnamon alongside polished, fine-grained tannins. It has soft appeal but is already evolved and short on intensity and verve. It will, however, make enjoyable drinking over the next few years.
