Paternoster Don Anselmo 2015 accolades

Paternoster Don Anslemo 2015 has deserved great reviews and accolades from International and Italian best magazines and wine guides.
95 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2015 Aglianico del Vulture Don Anselmo sees fruit sourced from a 4.5-hectare single vineyard located at 600 meters above sea level. Soils are composed of compressed ash and crushed volcanic sponge rock. The wine opens to tangy fruit aromas that are brooding and thick. Background aromas of tar, smoke and cigar ash give the wine dimension and complexity. The wine is tight in terms of its texture and tannins and could use a few more years of bottle aging before you pop the cork. Fruit was harvested on the 23rd and 24th of October. Don Anselmo is fermented in equal parts steel vat and oak barrel. It then ages in wood for 20 months, followed by an additional six months in steel (that replaced older cement vats). The 2015 vintage is hitting the market now.
93 - James Suckling
This is a delicious and exotic red with clove, tea-leaf and ripe-fruit aromas and flavors. Full body, soft tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Anise coming through at the end.
Delicious finish. Drink now.
94 - Wine and Spirits
The Paternoster family makes about 150,000 bottles a year from their 50 vineyard acres on the slopes of Mount Vulture in Basilicata. Don Anselmo is their top wine, made from the estate’s oldest vines, growing in volcanic soils at 2,000 feet of elevation. It’s dense and formidably tannic, its plum and raspberry flavors infused with notes of graphite and tobacco. Brisk acidity balances the wine’s smoky richness, keeping the structure lithe.
3 Bicchieri - Gambero Rosso
95 Faccino - Doctor Wine
5 Grappoli - Bibenda
