Filipa Pato Nossa Calcário Baga 2021

Bairrada, Northern Portugal, PortugalThis Baga is handpicked and hand selected from their centenary vineyards in the rocky limestone soils of Bairrada, yielding only 3 to 4 bunches/vine. Partly destemmed, this was fermented in open oak lagares with some pigeage. After fermentation the wine is aged in 500/600L pipas, plus 1 2000L foudre. Wild black plum, wild blackberry is structured with thorns and finely firm tannins, scented with purple wildflowers and scrubby rosemary. Very much in youth still, this will unravel and unknit with time.Tasted: 16 November 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
