Tasting Notes:

99 points " Daniel Thomases Wine Advocate Issue 154 99/100 It's hard to know what to write next about this fabulous wine, which not only has revealed the phenomenal potential of the blend of 80% Aglianico (for power and depth) and 20% Piedirosso (for aromatic complexity) but also demonstrated why Falernum, the wine produced in this area under the Roman Empire, was considered the greatest of the ancient world, capable - according to Petronius - of lasting 100 years. I'll make no predictions about the aging potential of the 2001 Terra di Lavoro, other than the fact that I will regrettably not be around for the centenary celebration, but I would be amazed if it did not last twenty five years. In the meantime, it gives back every nuance of aroma and flavor of the slopes on which it is grown, the blackberry/raspberry fruit, truffles, tar, underbrush, and warm volcanic soil in a packed but super-elegant format, rich, powerful, mouth-filling and palate-satisfying, concentrated, velvety, and flawless. To the owners, and to Riccardo Cotarella, the only possible words which can be expressed are those of simple gratitude for this unexpected miracle which appeared out of nowhere in 1994 and has not ceased to amaze ever since."
