Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture DOC 2017 - Paternoster Tommasi Estates

Since 1925, Paternoster has been one of the symbolic wineries of Basilicata. Among the first to carry out a serious work of enhancement of the prince grape of Southern Italy, the Paternosters have shown the world that Aglianico is capable of giving wines of great character, so as to be called the Barolo of the South. Since 2016, the Tommasi family has joined Paternoster, giving new lifeblood to the Lucanian company and investing with increasing conviction on the project of enhancing the value of this extraordinary grape variety. Synthesi is a pure Aglianico, made by means of a classic red vinification, from destemmed grapes and with a maceration on the skins for 12/15 days at controlled temperature, with periodic pumping over and punching down. This is followed by a 12-month ageing phase, partly in large Slavonian oak casks and partly in second and third passage French barriques. The result is a wine characterized by a beautiful ruby red colour, with a fragrant fruity bouquet of blackberry, blueberry, underbrush berries and pepper. The taste is dry and velvety, with tannins well detected but in harmony with all the other components. Very long persistence.

From Veneto to the whole world. Tommasi is a family business founded in 1902 and today it is run by the fourth generation of the family. A name that is, for many wine lovers, a guarantee of absolute quality. Over the years the company has grown a lot, acquiring vineyards and properties in different parts of Italy. Today the Tommasi Family Estates is a solid business reality, which can count on a total of about 570 hectares of vineyards, divided into five regions. Seven estates between Valpolicella Classica and Puglia, passing through Lombardy, Tuscany and now even Basilicata. Unlike other entrepreneurial realities that, as they have grown, have gradually lost their taste for quality research and their passion for the territory, at Tommasi these values have remained central. A great company awarded by international critics and present with its products in dozens of markets, which has been able to maintain a family spirit.

    The 2017 Aglianico del Vulture Synthesi offers aromas that are sharp and sudden with wild fruit, scorched earth and Indian furniture wax. The wine is streamlined and tight with rose petal, ash, pressed violets and volcanic stone. There is a touch of saltiness on the close of this lean-bodied red. This scorching-hot vintage falls flat compared to previous editions.

  • James Sucking 92
  • Wine Spectator 90

    Mouthwatering acidity and a subtly smoky, minerally underpinning focus the rich notes of plumped cherry, red licorice, coffee liqueur and orange peel in this harmonious, medium- to full-bodied red. Light, taut tannins firm the spiced finish. Drink now through 2027.
