Paternoster Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture 2018 (90 VM)
“The 2018 Aglianico del Vulture Synthesi is dark and brooding in the glass, mixing black currants with flowery underbrush, ash and nuances of blood orange. It washes across the palate, pure and lifted in style, with nervous acidity that further accelerates the expression, as mentholated herbal tones give way to tart wild blueberries. The 2018 tapers off with tension while taking on more of a floral profile, and it leaves the palate pleasantly refreshed.” – E.G 3/23
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.
