Paternoster

Paternoster has been one of the most important wineries in the Basilicata region of Southern Italy since 1927. It was Anselmo Paternoster who first began bottling and selling wines under the Paternoster family name, while Pino Paternoster was among the first to produce wines under the Aglianico del Vulture DOC in 1971. Since 2016, the family’s long tradition in the region has been paired with the Tommasi expertise.

The winery is located in Barile, the heart of Basilicata, a region with unique volcanic soil and climatic conditions. The estate extends over 20 hectares divided into several crus of very old vineyards in the four districts of Rotondo, Macarico, Pian di Carro and Gelosia, planted between 450 and 600m altitude. All plots are cultivated on a natural terrace overlooking Mount Vulture, an extinct volcano that produces fine wines with an authentic soul.

Considered to be among the best red wines of Italy, Aglianico is the most important grape of this region. The Estate’s flagiship cuvée is Don Anselmo Aglinico del Vuture DOC, an ode to the Paternoster family’s founding winemaker, made from the oldest vineyards. Synthesi is an earlier drinking Aglianico, while Vulcanico is refreshing Falangina which perfectly expresses its volcanic roots.
