Michelini i Mufatto 2020 'GY' Malbec/Cabernet Franc, Gualtallary Login AG 93 In Stock

Andrea Mufatto and Gerardo Michelini started their winery in 2019 alongside their son Manu Michelini. Their winery sits at the foot of the Andes in one of the highest elevations of Gualtallary where the soil contains some of the richest components of calcium carbonate and granite in all of South America. This particular sub region is at the highest, most western portion of Gualtallary and goes by the name La Cautiva.

At Michelini i Mufatto they strive to make some of the most unique wines of Argentina and the wines show tension, elegance and balance. They are currently working with Semillon, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The trio also makes wine in Uruguay and Spain and as well as importing small production wine from Europe.

"Andrea Muffato and Gerardo Michelini are a prolific winemaking team. Using grapes from Tupungato, Uco Valley, they make wines that appeal more to the modern internationals tastes with good tension. Their best work so far is the Malbec La Cautiva, made with grapes from a vineyard in Gualtallary planted at 4,900 feet. In 2019, the pair also began bottling wines in Spain."

  • Michelini i Mufatto 2020 'GY' Malbec/Cabernet Franc, Gualtallary

    Rating: 93 (11/18/2021)

    The 2020 GY is a blend of 65% Malbec and 35% Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary, Uco Valley and was aged in an old foudre. A vivid purple in color, the pure, expressive nose offers aromas of fresh plum and blackcurrant with hints of herb and violet and a whiff of jalapeño. In the mouth, it’s compact with finely grained, chalky tannins, verticality and tension. A wine bursting with lively expression.
