Gen del Alma is a new project started in 2012 by Gerardo Michelini, of Zorzal, and his wife and winemaker Andrea Mufatto. Gerardo and Andrea have planted vines on their individually owned property adjacent to the Zorzal winery. Their focal concept is to showcase the purity, minerality, and freshness of Gualtallary terroir. Their minimal vinification process allows the fruit to shine on its own. They use concrete eggs, used barrique, and in some cases, carbonic maceration in the winery. The wines have received high praise from the Wine Advocate and Decanter magazine and is another example of the Michelini’s taking Argentine wine to a new level.

    Rating: 88 (7/25/2018)

    Aromas of pineapple, orange zest, ginger and crushed stone, plus a positive suggestion of oxidation that quickly dissipated. Bone-dry, salty wine with a tart lemon drop character, distinct minerality and some unabsorbed CO2. In an extremely austere style but shows more body than its 11.5% alcohol would suggest. Hipster sommelier alert: this one's for you. For all others: you've been warned.
