Zuccardi Poligonos Gualtallary Malbec 2018

Argentina / Uco Valley

Andy's Tasting Notes

This is so pure and unadulterated with pristine and vivid cassis and plum fruit, intertwined with wild herbs, spice and blueberry.  Concentrated, rich and mellow with counterbalancing acidity and rounded tannins complementing the long and harmonious finish.

‘Poligono’ refers to the many faces of a vineyard. Sebastian Zuccardi explores those unique vineyard characteristics through precise grape selections from the individual micro regions of the Uco Valley.

Vintage – 2018 is a great vintage when all the parameters for judging an outstanding year came together to produce truly exceptional wines.

Producer Info

Some years before 1950, engineer Alberto ‘Tito’ Zuccardi arrived in Mendoza from Tucumán, the small province in northwest Argentina where his Italian grandparents had settled many years before. He began experimenting with new irrigation systems because, back then as is the case today, water management is strategic due to its scarcity. In 1963 he planted a vineyard in the Maipú region, aiming to show other neighbouring farmers how his irrigation system worked, not realising at the time that this would be the beginning of his life’s passion.

Today Bodega Zuccardi Valle de Uco is led by Sebastián Zuccardi. Following in the footsteps of his Grandfather, Alberto and his Father, José, Sebastián’s aim is to create wines of great purity, firmly rooted in the terroirs of the Uco Valley, in the shadow of the Andes Mountains.

Located in the Paraje Altamira, in the shadow of the Andes Mountains, the Zuccardi winery was designed to reflect the surrounding landscape. It was built as a tribute to the austere and solemn mountains that define the climate and the soils of the region. The construction is part of the landscape, made using materials sourced from the estate and the nearby Tunuyan River. It is composed of concrete from the outside to the inside, from the stone walls, oblique and imposing, to the concrete vats in which are the wines aged.

The Zuccardi family mission is to establish working policies which minimise the impact on the environment and which can contribute to the overall awareness of environmental issues in society today. They base all their decisions, for both production and distribution processes, on a respect for the soil, the air, the flora and fauna, and the whole community. They are focusing towards sustainable agriculture, co-existing with nature without damaging it. They keep a comprehensive waste recycling policy and they incorporate the use of alternative energy sources into the production systems.
