Fattoria Galardi Terra di Lavoro Roccamonfina IGT
Campania
Italy
2012

Wine Spectator: 92 points
Rich and expressive, with sappy black cherry and currant fruit, a tarry, mineral-tinged underpinning and accents of black licorice drop, wild herb, graphite and mocha, all wrapped around fine-grained tannins. Elegant and supple overall, with a long, aromatic finish. Aglianico. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made.

The Wine Advocate: 94 points
From a ten hectare vineyard, the 2012 Roccamonfina Terra di Lavoro touches on many of the glory points that made this such an important cult wine for Campania. Although 2012 was a hot vintage, this wine shows an impressive sense of balance and elegance. This is especially apparent on the nose where it delivers blasts of dark fruit, balsam herb, tar, licorice and volcanic ash with meticulous precision. The fruit is layered, soft and ripe. In fact, the mouthfeel is the wine's best asset. Its fine tannins offer enormous structure, but they are soft and yielding at the same time. This is an open and honest expression of Aglianico (80%) and Piedirosso that has only just begun its long evolution.
