Familia Zuccardi Malbec 'Concreto'
WINE TYPE: Red
APPELLATION: Paraje Altamira
Still family run with a history dating back to the early 1960s, Zuccardi has been producing wines for three generations. Known for innovation and quality, we are thrilled to showcase these wines.
The 'Concreto' Malbec is sourced from high altitude vineyards in Paraje Altamira in the Uco Valley within Mendoza. The vineyards are chosen specifically for their calcareous (or stony) top soils. Whole cluster fermentation happens in concrete tank by way of indigenous yeast and aging happens in neutral concrete as well. The result is a pure, clean, thought-provoking expression of Malbec. The wine is aromatic and floral with punchy black and blue fruit, herbal notes, a structured palate, fresh acidity and a long finish.
