Fattoria Galardi Terra di Lavoro 2001, 750mL (WA97, WS95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Fattoria Galardi Terra di Lavoro

750mL

Vintage: 2001
Region: Italy

WA97, WS95
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2001 Terra di Lavoro is a blockbuster. Still incredibly fresh and vibrant, the 2001 impresses for its superb overall balance and poise. There is exceptional clarity and nuance in the glass, not to mention finessed tannins that frame the intensity of the fruit all the way through to the glorious finish, where hints of chocolate, espresso and minerals add the final layers of complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.` -- Antonio Galloni in Robert Parker`s Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Terra di Lavoro, first produced in 1994, has quickly established itself as one of Italy`s cult wines. I tasted all of these vintages with proprietors Arturo and Dora Celentano during their first visit to the US. The Celentanos have a huge passion for food and wine, and that exuberance comes through loud and clear in these fabulous wines. Terra di Lavoro is 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso from vines planted by consulting oenologist Riccardo Cotarella beginning in 1991. The fruit is harvested according to ripeness rather than strictly by variety, which means that Aglianico and Piedirosso are sometimes picked and vinified together. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wines are racked into French oak where they remain on their lees for several months. Cotarella describes Aglianico as a hard grape to take through malolactic fermentation. He therefore believes it is essential for the final blend to be made before the wines go into malo. The final blend is assembled and undergoes what is usually a very slow malo, in steel for 80-90% of the wine, prior to being moved back into oak. There is little question that malolactic fermentation in stainless steel contributes significant freshness and aging potential to this heroic southern Italian wine.`
