Winemaker Notes

This small production wine is a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary. The nose shows notes of plum, cassis, cocoa nibs, and crushed dried leaves. On the palate, the wine comes through with black currant held up by a strong tannin core. This wine is good now but can definitely age as well.

Blend: 60% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
A pure and direct nose is highly exact and confident, with aromas of black fruit that are crisp and clean. A tight, juicy palate is balanced by ample roundness, while this delivers high-quality berry and plum flavors that are familiar to fans of Argentine Malbec. This is 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Franc. Drink through 2026.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 GY is a new blend of Malbec and Cabernet Franc from different vineyards within Gualtallary. The varieties fermented together with some full clusters in old and large oak vats and matured in used barriques for 12 months. It has a clean and expressive nose with a mixture of wild herbs and flowers, rockrose, thyme, lavender—very much about the landscape of the place—and with a medium-bodied palate and very fine tannins. There is no trace of oak here; there is great balance and very good freshness, supple flavors, good definition and purity.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Michelini i Mufatto GY Red Wine is lovely and demonstrative. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers expansive aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, and savory spices. Serve it with grilled meats and garden-fresh greens. (Tasted: April 11, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Andrea Mufatto and Gerardo Michelini started their winery in 2019 alongside their son Manuel Michelini.

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 they are the first family in Argentina to import small production wine from Europe

Mendoza Wine

Argentina

View all products

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
