This wine has a deep, inky ruby color and compelling aromas of smoky dark fruit, ash, tobacco and minerals. The palate is powerfully structured and layered with bold flavors that have an impressive enduring finish.

A very rare wine from Italy's Campania region. Terra di Lavoro has been a collectors dream since it first appeared in the late '90's. The 2005 Terra di Lavoro is a blend of 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso aged in new oak barrels. The Wine Advocate scored it 93 points and said “The 2005 Terra di Lavoro is a beauty. This massively structured, imposing blend of 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso bursts from the glass with a compelling array of smoke, ash, graphite, underbrush and black cherries. Layered, sweet and powerful, it reveals notable depth as well as persistence. While it is not profound as is the 2004, it will likely come around sooner. That is of course in relative terms given that Terra di Lavoro has proven to be a very slow-maturing wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.” not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Advocate.

The wine is deep purple in color with smoky, earthy aromas and hints of tobacco and graphite. Notes of ripe black cherries, cassis, tobacco and leather come through on the palate of this big- structured, full-bodied wine.
Tiefdunkle, satte Farbe. Verhaltenes, leicht staubig-diffuses, nach Belüftung öffnendes Bouquet. Unterholz, Teer, Cassis…Zweifellos ist dieser „Kultwein“ noch weit entfernt von seinen Möglichkeiten. Knochentrockenes Tannin überzieht den ganzen Gaumen, die dezente Extraktsüsse vermag kaum abzupuffern. Dicht und mineralisch, komplexe und urtümlich anmutende Gaumenfrucht nach Cassis, Tabak, Teer, Leder, Holz. Langer Nachhall. Selten und aussergewöhnlich, schwierig zu beurteilen in dieser Phase. Unbedingt einige Jahre reifen lassen.
