Paternoster Don Anselmo Aglianico del Vulture 2016 (93 WS)
“A rich, savory red in a fresh, full-bodied frame, featuring pretty notes of ripe cherry, black raspberry and licorice, layered with finely meshed threads of tarry smoke, saline and cured tobacco. Dense, fine-grained tannins provide definition, but remain well-swathed by the detailed flavor range.” – A.N.

Aglianico del Vulture DOC
Don Anselmo is a landmark wine made from 100% Aglianico grapes, the native varietal in Basilicata for which the region is renowned. It is dedicated to the winery’s founder, Anselmo Paternoster, and represents the history, roots, and continued importance of the Paternoster family in the area of production of the wines, Vulture.
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.
