Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture 2015 (91 WS)
“A fresh, firm and densely knit red, offering an up-front waft of warm brown bread, ground pink peppercorn and anise. This full-bodied version opens in the glass, revealing aromatic hints of violet and marjoram that accent the ripe mulberry fruit, iron-laced mineral and dried fig flavors as they echo on the supple finish. Best from 2022 through 2029. 550 cases made, 100 cases imported”
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.
