Characteristics of A Merced del Bierzo El Canto

A Merced del Bierzo El Canto is a red wine, D.O. Bierzo, produced by the Michelini y Mufatto winery.

Michelini y Mufatto is the family project created by the married couple Andrea Mufatto and Gerardo Michelini in Bierzo.

Once their Zorzal winery became consolidated in Argentina, they came to Bierzo in 2015 with the help of Raúl Pérez and his nephew César Márquez, looking for new areas to produce in. Here they fell in love with Ozuela, a small town with vineyards that were mostly forgotten, but with great potential.

Michelini and Mufatto’s wines seek the maximum expression of the terroir, of the native varieties and the influence of the vintage, without neglecting the area’s winemaking tradition. The result is impressive: wines with a great deal of personality and full of Berzian character.

A Merced del Bierzo El Canto is a red wine made with Mencía grapes from old vines over 80 years of age planted on slate slopes some 400 meters above sea level, located in the hamlet of San Lorenzo (Ponferrada).

After harvesting by hand, and once in the winery, the grapes are vinified without destemming. After treading, they ferment with native yeasts in clay amphoras. Here, they are left for 5 months. After this time the wine is transferred into French oak barrels where it will rest for 8 months. It is bottled without filtering.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
