The top shelf wine in the Paternoster portfolio is the 2013 Aglianico del Vulture Don Anselmo. This very attractive and elegant vintage reveals a beautiful bouquet with extremely chiseled and focused fruit. The cool growing season results in bright aromas of dark berry, spice, licorice and campfire ash. There is a tangy element, too, with grilled herb and rosemary essence. This full-bodied wine is robust and amply structured at the back. This vintage is superior to 2015 in terms of linearity and sharpness. The 2016 vintage should enjoy an exceptionally long period of bottle evolution and aging.
