Description

Gen del Alma was founded in 2012 by winemaker Andrea Mufatto and her husband Gerardo Michelini, of Zorzal. Gerardo and Andrea farm vines on their property in Gualtallary and in Villa Seca Tunuyan. Their focal concept is to showcase the purity, minerality, and freshness of the Uco Valley though a minimal vinification process. They use concrete eggs, clay amphora, various sizes of oak foudre and cement tanks. Gen del Alma is an example of the new wave of Argentine wine that harkens back to the old world style of balance and freshness.
The nose explodes showcasing rich fruit of mixed berries and cherries with dried herbs, creme de cassis, forest floor, mocha, caramel, truffles, and dried espresso grounds. The soft tannin and fleshy, velvet mid palate integrates with a mineral driven finish of crushed wet rock, typical of Gualtallary. This is what wine is all about, Fuerza Tranquila!
