Filipa Pato Território Vivo Baga Red
Brilliant intense dark cherry red colour with a present viscosity. The nose is complex with aromas of stone fruit, cacao, cigar leaves and cedar wood. The taste is delicate and elegant, the texture is silky and velvety, in the aftertaste there is a dark chocolate touch with a nice freshness thanks to the pureness of the Baga.

This ''Territorio Vivo'' is a delicate Baga, it reflects the true term of ''Living Terroir''. The heritage of old vineyards of our emblematic Baga grape is a richness to be relished. Some of them are over 80 years old. The subsoils are chalky clay and the vineyards are South East oriented on fairly steep slopes. The vinification is done in an authentic open oak lagar during 3 to 4 weeks and then aged in traditional pipas for about 8 months. This wine will age very well and will be able to be appreciated between 7 to 20 years according to the vintage and cellaring conditions. This 2020 is for many reasons an unforgettable harvest. We had an attack of rabbits on all our old vines of Baga. The rabbits ate all grapes til 30 cm from the soil. This left us with high quality grapes but a really tiny crop. Making wine close to nature without using pesticides or herbicides can be quite a challenge, certainly when your terroir is very much alive.
The grapes are handpicked from different vineyards in Bairrada. Partly destemmed, fermented in open oak lagares with some extraction (pigeage) and less maceration on the skins. After the fermentation the wine is aged in 500 – 600 l used pipas and tonel (big cask).
