Filipa Pato Nossa Missão Tinto 2019


Filipa Pato Nossa Missão red wine is notable for its pure expression of Baga. Young, with aromas reminiscent of violet and strawberry.

Grape Varieties: Baga

Reviewed by Mark Squires: Nossa Missão is a single-vineyard Baga from more than 130 year-old pre-phylloxera vines on limestone soils. It was aged for 18 months in used Austrian oak and comes in at just 12.7% alcohol. Stunning again, this layered Baga adds some depth to the Nossa Calcario this issue, but that's a very relative comment. It remains refined, beautifully balanced and surprisingly sexy for Baga. The mid-palate finesse is impressive. The wood shows a bit just now. But that will get better. While the tannins are ripe and you can in theory drink this understated Baga now, holding it for a few years to allow it to develop more complexity and pull in the wood is a great idea. You’ve been warned. The next day it was more about the fruit, though, and it showed off delectable cherry flavors that made it very hard to resist. If your vision of Baga is rustic and unapproachable when young, this will be a different approach for you. This is pretty great, but it’s not quite all it can be yet. It’s worth leaning up for the moment, but it does have to finish evolving in the cellar to reach its potential.
