Paternoster Don Anselmo Aglianico del Vulture Doc 2016

94/100

Ruby and bright red colour with a distinctive profile. Classy and lightly spicy on the nose, with notes of ripe strawberry, hydrocarbons hints, cloves and  Resin, and more with Wildberries and light leather notes. In the mouth is elegant and mineral, juicy, showing elegance and structure, tannins with hints of minerality, long persistence.

 

Paternoster Rotondo Aglianico del Vulture Doc 2017

91/100

Intense ruby red colour. At first a slight note of oak wood, followed by dark chocolate, plums, ripe wild berries notes, and a gentle malty undertone. On the mouth is full with medium structured body, consistent and harmonious. The tertiary notes are perfectly integrated in the wine with chalky and slight velvety tannins.

 

Paternoster Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture Doc 2017

91/100

Bright and ruby red colour. Beeswax, fresh honey, rose hips and slight reminiscence of rubber on the nose, with reminiscences of light resin in the background. Crispy and juicy on the palate, with a clear note of fruit stone. It highlights its own identity with its typical mineral scents and pleasant freshness.


Casisano Colombaiolo 2013 reviews

Summer has brought  great reviews for our Casisano Colombaiolo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2013.
Here below the report of the best international wine critics:
92 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
From the Tommasi family in Northern Italy, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Colombaiolo opens to elegant delineation with precise aromas of dark cherry, spice, balsam herb and fragrant licorice. This wine delivers a mid-weight approach that is gracefully supported by silky tannins, balanced acidity and a pretty inner fabric that is characteristic of Sangiovese in a cool vintage such as this. - M.Larner
92 - Wine Spectator
Rich, with a supple texture wrapped around cherry, plum, earth, leather and bitter almond flavors. The vibrant acidity adds freshness as this dissolves into a finish of dense, lively tannins. Best from 2021 through 2040 - B. Sanderson
92 - James Suckling
Some strong menthol and herbal aromas here with hints of red fruit also in the mix. The palate has a supple and settled core of bright red cherries and approachable, fullish body.
92 - Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of plum, pipe tobacco, leather and menthol lead the nose along with a with of damp soil. The taut medium-bodied palate offers crushed cranberry, wild cherry and baking spice alongside firm, close-grained tannins - K. O'Keefe
91 - Decanter
Casisano is among the highest properties in Montalcino. Colombaiolo is a particularly fresh southeast-facing parcel, where the gravelly soil gives naturally low yields and wines with abundant structure. Aromas of cherry, dried tarragon, tea and tobacco are nicely defined. More sinewy than round, the palate needs some time to flesh out but its bright acidity will keep it lively.
90 - Vinous
Medium bright red. Pure, musky aromas of redcurrant, sour red cherry, hint, cinnamon, and earth tones. At once dense and juicy, with a light touch to the sweet, red fruit and floral flavors. Finishes taut and long, but with ripe tannins and persistent notes of hint and red fruit. - I. D'Agata
17/20 - Jancis Robinson
Mid ruby with bright orange tinges. Compact, subdued on the nose. Rich fruit on the palate followed by tangy acidity. Great balance and length. Contained power. - W. Speller
92 - Falstaff
Im Mund weich und warm, spannt sich samtig über die Zunge, önet sich auf eleganten zitrusfruchtigen Nuancen, angenehm und klar im Abgang.
Soft and warm on the palate, velvety over the tongue, rich in elegant citrus nuances,pleasant and clear finish.
