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.
Fanaghina is made in the Vulture area in vineyards located at 450/600 mt above sea level.
Classic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 16/18 °C. The wine is then maturated for about 5 months in stainless steel tanks while staying in contact with its lees.
The name Vulcanico highlights the characther of this wine made from the vineyards near the Vulcano Vulture. The freshness, balminess and delicacy typical of the Falanghina grape are seamlessly belnded with the brightness and generosity, a unique combination reminiscent of Southern Italy.
Ideal as an aperitif, it can also accompany various types of antipasti, plates of simple fish and vegetables as well as fresh cheeses.
