Paternoster Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture 2020 (92 VM)

“The 2020 Aglianico del Vulture Synthesi is dark and rich in the glass, with mentholated herbs giving way to plum sauce, medicinal black cherries, hints of undergrowth and dark chocolate. This is velvety in feel with cooling acidity to balance. Ripe red and black fruits swirl throughout, maintaining a mouthwatering freshness. The 2020 tapers off with a web of fine tannins and notes of clove that add a lovely bitter sensation toward the close. This is a beautifully balanced rendition of Pasternoster’s Synthesi.”-E.G. 5/24

    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.
