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.

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.
