With enough air you might get this to come around for current drinking, but it’s clearly intended to cellar for ages. When opened, the wine is very dense, dark, rich chocolaty fruit, a bit of herbs – thyme, rosemary, grainy ripe tannins, very long. A couple of hours later the structure has intensified, more of everything, very tannic, and higher-toned, with nice berry fruit showing. All in all, a fabulous effort from the brilliant Pepe family, especially if you can put it away for a long time. JW
A blend of Aglianico and Piedirosso grown in volcanic soils in the hills of northwestern Campania, Fattoria Galardi's Terra di Lavora (land of labor) is a intended to be a vin de garde. The wines seldom express overt fruit and tend towards the savory and mineral. Quite dark in the glass-nearly black-and still youthful appearing despite its age. Aromatically it is somewhat reticent, wild blackberry, smoke, plums, violets, graphite, loam, anise, and saddle leather reveal themselves with vigorous decanting. Initially on the palate the tannins are ripe, but still very much present. Over time more dark fruits emerge, leaning toward hedge fruits, along with savory sense of earthiness. There is a great deal of mineral complexity coiled within. The finish is quite long and savory. We'd decant for a few hours and serve with lamb ragu or dry-aged beef now or cellar for another 10-15 years for a detailed expression of the volcanic terroir to emerge. JCM
Rancia is a south-facing vineyard on quartz and sandstone rocky soil. It produces a full-bodied expression of Sangiovese. It has lush blackberry and black cherry fruit with cinnamon, tobacco and fig with long sweet tannins. TB
