With this wine, the rebellious Luis Pato wants to show that you can make a very charming wine with soft tannins from the rather tannic Baga grape. He compares normal Baga red wines with Nebbiolo from Piedmont, this one is more like a Pinot Noir from Burgundy, he says. It shows an open bouquet with aromas of blackberries, raspberries and dark chocolate. Full on the palate, with elegance that is typical of the Baga, the fruit aromas can be found again in the long finale. Very fine!
