"Authentic Wines Without Makeup" is Filipa Pato's motto and she more than delivers the essence of this message through her wines. Filipa and her husband William Wouters run a biodynamic property in Portugal’s Bairrada region where the emphasis is on allowing the vineyards to express themselves through the wines that are produced from them. The name of this wine “Dinamico”, is meant to express the multiple ways that the Baga grape expresses itself depending upon where in the region it was grown. Aromatically intense with notes of plum, blackberry, violets, and wild herbs and a palate that’s rich with cherry and blueberry notes, this has a lovely, mouth-filling flavor. Fine grained tannins and a fresh acidity lend the wine a vibrant textural component. Incredibly easy drinking and food-friendly, this would show well with the heartier foods of the winter.
