GEN DEL ALMA
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.
