2019 Michelini i Mufatto "Certezas" Semillon Tupungato

SKU #1679253 98 points Tim Atkin

Outer quote mark It’s always tricky to choose a winner between this wine and Propósitos - both are world-class whites - but I just prefer Certezas in 2019. Sourced from a 130-year-old parcel in El Peral, it has aromas of beeswax and aniseed, subtle skin tannins, savoury intensity and layers of black tea, waxed lemon and orange zest. stunning stuff from a brilliant winemaking duo.

Outer quote mark 96+ points "The white 2019 Certezas was produced with Sémillon from a plot of old vines from Finca Manoni in El Peral (Tupungato). Like the rest of the whites, it macerated with the skins for three days and then was pressed and fermented in 1,000-liter oak foudre, where the wine matured with gross lees for one year and then was transferred to used 500-liter barrels to mature for one more year. 2019 was cold and dry, and the grapes were healthy and ripened thoroughly to 13.7% alcohol while the wine retained very good freshness, acidity and balance. This is always the more Burgundian of the whites, with some yeasty and smoky aromas. It has a very balanced palate with pungent flavors and depth; it's pure, complete, juicy and round, with very good structure. This is superb and has all the components and balance between them to age nicely in bottle. 1,500 bottles were filled in June 2021." (LG) Inner quote mark (11/2022)
