Paternoster Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture 2016 (90 WA)
“The well-priced 2016 Aglianico del Vulture Synthesi is a streamlined and immediate wine to enjoy within the next five years or so. The wine shows purity and focus with dark fruit aromas of dried cherry and blackcurrant followed by spice, tar and scorched earth. It shows a mid-weight approach with some mild tannic firmness and balanced acidity.”
Aglianico del Vulture DOC
Volcanic wines are currently a hot topic among wine critics and enthusiasts worldwide, and Paternoster is very much of the moment: it is a volcanic wine in the literal sense of the term and stands on an extinct volcano. Paternoster is located in the relatively unknown southern Italian region of Basilicata, on the slopes surrounding Mount Vulture, and has long been considered one of the region’s most important wineries.
