Producer: Luis Pato
The 2015 Quinta do Ribeirinho Pé Franco was aged for 24 months in new French oak and comes in at just 12.5% alcohol. This is sourced from ungrafted vines. This has been seen before. It's been a bit closed, however. It's good to check in on it next to the new 2017 release this report. The 2017 might be more elegant and brighter than this stern and dry Tinto—and Pato once said to me that the 2017s had fine natural acidity—but this is more impressive for its concentration and gorgeous structure. A monumental Baga, this is certainly one of the great moments in Luis Pato's long and illustrious career
