Nossa Calcario Baga Tinto 2018 – From three small biodynamically cultivated chalky clay plots averaging 80-years-old. Bright as a button, buoyant yet grounded, with subtle, pine needle-edged crunchy red cherry, plus white and black pepper. A pronounced smoky, mineral undertow and incipient mushroom to the finish. Fine-framed, the incisive acidity and slender, refined, backbone of tannin in service of the fruit. Aged in used 500-600-litre French oak.
