Terra di Rosso
Since 1994 we, at GALARDI, have often thought about giving birth to TERRA DI LAVORO ‘s brother, but we were first committed to complete the production programme, then, like many other companies, to contain the effects of the crisis. Time was passing by and it never seemed the right moment to turn thoughts into concrete actions.
Then, in spite of climate change, 2017 arrived and since the first evolutionary stages of the ripening of the grapes, the signs of a great vintage and mainly an excellent performance of Piedirosso.
It was the right moment to do what needed to be done. In these conditions Aglianico and Piedirosso were different in terms of ripening and not only. The successful combination of elegance and unpredictability led to an early and excellent harvest for Piedirosso.
It was the right time to select a proportion of PIEDIROSSO that exceeded that needed for the mixture of Terra di Lavoro and follow its evolution with great care and attention.
In February 2019 that was it. The wine was ready.

The land extends on a volcanic terrain, with great potential, descending towards the sea. Wineyards and olive groves are set in an enchanting setting of chestnut woods that alternate on the slopes of the volcano of Roccamonfina offering an extraordinary chance to meet the nature. Wineyards, olive groves and chestnut cultivation, together with the production of high quality wine and extra virgin olive oil determine the commitment of Galardi.
Galardi, by giving essence to the love for the land and to the respect for nature, has always adopted organic farming practices.
