Paternoster Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture 2017 (17 JR)
“Impenetrable dark ruby. Concentrated dark-fruit nose with nutty overtones of oak and hints of vanilla. Lush dark fruit with enough acidity to balance it and fine long tannins. International veneer but with enough personality to counteract. From an extremely hot and dry year, this is an amazingly balanced wine at a surprisingly modest 13% alcohol.” – W.S.

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.
