Paternoster great reviews by Jancis Robinson

Mr Walter Speller in his report about South Italian wines for Jancinsrobinson.com mentioned Paternoster wines, which deserved very nice scores.
We are very proud  of these reviews, that show all the effort and dedication that we have in Vulture terroir.

17.5/20 Paternoster Don Anselmo Aglianico del Vulture doc 2015
100% Aglianico from a 50-year-old vineyard at 600 m above sea level. Fermentation and maceration on the skins in stainless steel for 15 to 18 days at 25–28 °C with pumping-over three times a day until three-quarters of the fermentation was complete, followed by rack and returns. Half of the wine was aged in large Slavonian oak casks, while the other half was aged in French oak barriques of second passage.
Deep ruby with orange tinges. Deep and concentrated dark-fruit and cherry nose with a hint of dusty oak and tamarind. A little richer and more concentrated on the palate than the 2016. The damson and cherry fruit on the finish is lined with powdery tannins adding chew to the finish. (WS)

17/20 Paternoster Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture doc 2017
100% Aglianico grown at between 450 and 600 m above sea level. Maceration on the skins in stainless steel for 12–15 days at 25–28 °C, with regular pumping-over and punching-down of the cap. 80% of the wine was aged for 12 months in large Slavonian oak casks and 20% in used French barriques for 14 months, followed by seven months in bottle.
Impenetrable dark ruby. Concentrated dark-fruit nose with nutty overtones of oak and hints of vanilla. Lush dark fruit with enough acidity to balance it and fine long tannins. International veneer but with enough personality to counteract. From an extremely hot and dry year, this is an amazingly balanced wine at a surprisingly modest 13% alcohol. (WS)

16.5/20 Paternoster Rotondo Aglianico del Vulture doc 2017
100% Aglianico grown in the Villa Rotondo vineyard at 500 m above sea level. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks for 15 days at 25–28 °C, with regular pumping-over and punching-down of the cap. Malolactic fermentation and ageing in new French barriques for 14 months, followed by 12 months in bottle.
Deep crimson. There is quite a bit of oak on the nose but it cannot suppress the Aglianico characteristics: dark cherry and wild strawberry with a hint of liquorice mingling with perfumed, sweet oak. Palate that’s lively, juicy and almost a little mouth-watering with cherry fruit and with firm, slightly dry tannins. Modernist, but with plenty of character. (WS)

16/20 Paternoster Vulcanico Falanghina 2019
100% Falanghina grown in vineyards at between 450 and 600 m above sea level. Fermented at 16 °C in stainless steel and aged on the fine lees in stainless steel for around five months.Straw yellow. Savoury mandarin, pickled lemon and lush white- and yellow-fruit nose. Zippy, viscous lemon fruit palate. Appetising and with a lemony, savoury finish. (WS)
