Manual harvest in small crates; classic red wine fermentation with destemmed grapes; maceration in stainless steel for 15 days at 25°-28°C, with periodic pumping over and punching down of the cap.

Serving Suggestions

It can even be enjoyed throughout a meal, but goes particularly well with pasta with meat sauce, roasts of lamb or red meats, and with mature cheeses.

Vineyard

Tommasi family enters with a majority stake in the Paternoster wine company, historical producer of Aglianico del Vulture, in Basilicata region to strengthen the brand and the consolidation of the commercial network, as well as to increase interventions in the vineyards and cellar with a focus on organic and eco-sustainability. It covers about 20 hectares with black soil of volcanic origin, with a modern cellar, located in the different wine-growing districts in the countryside of the small town Barile. The vineyards are overlooking the Mount Vulture, an extinct volcano that marks the borders of a generous yet misterious land.
