"Hard as it may seem to believe, the 2004 Terra di Lavoro is even better. It opens with compelling, beguiling aromas of ash, tar, smoke and spices that lead to waves of dark fruit that coat the palate with superb intensity and depth. Structured and seamless at the same time, the 2004 Terra di Lavoro is a remarkable wine in every way. I am probably being overly optimistic but I hope this wine might be approachable by age ten or so. It is a joyous wine, and those fortunate enough to own it will have to exercise considerable patience. As profound as the 2004 is, I think we still haven't seen the best this estate is capable of. "
