Paternoster Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture 2017 (90 JS)
“Faded redcurrants, mahogany and tar are the driving factors here. Medium-bodied and quite fresh, this red lacks a bit of oomph and density, yet delivers a taut, mouthwatering offering.”
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.
