Galardi did a fabulous job with the 2003 Terra di Lavoro in this torrid, challenging vintage. This is a dark, muscular Terra di Lavoro loaded with imposing dark fruit wrapped around a frame of sheer muscle. The 2003 turns more elegant in the glass as the aromatics reluctantly begin to emerge, but the hard 2003 tannins never fully soften

I dont think this wine needs an introduction as it is one Parkers highest scoring wines in the history of the Wine Advocate but 2003 was very kind to Galardi. I cannot say enough about this wine as the vintage played right into their hands with a firm, cooling sea influence at night and the solar intensity of 2003 by day. The confluence of climate, sun and soil produced a beverage of immense stature that has the potential to be a legend. From Aglianico and Piedarossa this is as site specific as it gets with the volcanic ash of Mt. Vesuvius playing a big role in this coastal area near Naples.
