Description

While Zuccardi has ploughed a historic Malbec furrow in the lower-altitude, higher-volume Santa Rosa region in Mendoza’s east, father and son José and Sebastián decided on a project in the Uco Valley in 2002. Finca Piedra Infinita was purchased and planted in 2007 at 1,000m in the Altamira area; work on a new winery began in 2013. Aiming to express the typicity of the rocky, alluvial soils, they harvest specific sectors of the vineyard where the stone matrix is between 20cm and 49cm deep. Fermentation is carried out with native yeasts in concrete vats with about 60% of the grapes worked in whole bunches. Half the wine is aged in concrete, the other half in used oak vats. ‘It’s a wine that does not aim for perfection, but rather the unique identity of its origins,’ says Sebastián Zuccardi. The popular Familia Zuccardi has taken its reds to the next level with this pure Malbec, whose fragrant violet aromas give way to a palate of spicy blackberry fruit, underpinned by subtle oak and a fresh mulberry-like bite. 92 Points Decanter
