Sebastian Zuccardi, the grandson of the founder, is now in charge at this trailblazing family winery. Rapidly establishing himself as one of the great winemaking talents of Argentina, he is determined to alter the world’s perception of Malbec and evolve our understanding of what Mendoza has to offer.
Zuccardi wines express the essence of the soils and the extreme climate conditions and altitude in which are planted the vineyards. The growth and development of the Zuccardi range were led by Sebastián Zuccardi, who has as a premise to elaborate wines with identity through the exploration of the terroir in the Uco Valley.

🍇 Malbec 100%
Fermentation in concrete vats without epoxy, with indigenous yeast, maceration for 20 days. Malolactic fermentation and aging in concrete vats. Half of the wine is fermented with the whole cluster.
👀 Red color with violet hues.
👃It expresses a great herbal character with notes of red fruits, strawberry, cherry, and plum: which are complemented by distinctive mineral notes.
👄 On the first impression, there’s a whiff of green, which may be due to the coolness of the vintage. Then comes a big note of fresh-crushed grapes, as in must, along with earthiness and grilled herbs, pulled in tight by chalky-sticky tannins. Gutsy and youthful.
