"The carbonic maceration red 2019 JI JI JI is a co-fermentation of 50/50 Malbec and Pinot Noir, where the nose, at least in this infant phase, seems dominated by the classical aromatics of Malbec, with tons of violets and ripe cherries, while the Pinot Noir contributes with acidity. It fermented and matured in concrete and was bottled young and fresh, with moderate alcohol and very good freshness, making it very drinkable. The palate is tasty and fresh with lots of fruit, less volatility that in some previous vintages. It feels harmonious and tidy, keeping the personality. 23,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2019." ~ LG
Gen del AlmaView all from Gen del Alma
Gen del Alma was started in 2012 by winemaker Andrea Mufatto and her husband Gerardo Michelini of Zorzal. Andrea and Gerardo have bought land and planted vines in multiple areas of northern Mendoza; their focal concept is to showcase purity, minerality, and freshness through blends and practices unique to Argentina. The majority of their wines are currently sourced from their property in Gualtallary and they also work with other vineyards in different subregions of the Uco Valley. Their minimal vinification process allows the fruit to shine on its own. Their winery is located in the town of Tupungato and is comprised of concrete eggs, barrique, foudre, and amphoras. Andrea and Gerardo also make a wine in Bierzo, under the 'Michelini i Mufatto A Merced' label.
