Baga Clássico Red 2019

Mason Balistreri

They don't have this wine where I live. Not only that, but they don't even have a wine similar or made from the same grape. This is the Baga grape which is very much like Nebbiolo in that it's ultra acidic and tannic, but the fruit reminds me more of Bordeaux. Dark berry and plenty of color but the acidity is amazing. Aromatically, you can see that this needs some time to relax and open up, but it's already ultra intriguing. The fruit concentration is there but it gives off a much cooler climate vibe than most of the Portuguese wines that I've tasted so far. The fruit is slightly tart but the body is totally there. It's very elegant... or maybe I would say distinguished? It's also tannic as hell. I bought a few older vintages so I'm hoping that they will be equally as delicious but more developed. They say these go decades. Again, it's a total failure by the Colorado market that this or other Bagas are not distributed.
