"The 2021 Concreto Malbec has to be one of the finest vintages of this wine despite its youth and still shy personality. But there are tons of flowers, wild herbs and berries there waiting to emerge in an insinuating way, with austerity but unfurling layers and layers as the wine sits in the glass.

"The 2021 Concreto Malbec has to be one of the finest vintages of this wine despite its youth and still shy personality. But there are tons of flowers, wild herbs and berries there waiting to emerge in an insinuating way, with austerity but unfurling layers and layers as the wine sits in the glass. It's incredibly fine-boned with chalky tannins that scream limestone, full of precision and purity. For Sebastin Zuccardi, they didn't do anything different, it's just the character of the year. This is the wine that explains their philosophy without breaking your piggy bank. It is delicious, serious, approachable and with aging potential. What else do you want? I have sometimes confused this wine blind with one of their top bottlings. This is one of the best values around. They produced 47,000 bottles in this vintage. It was bottled in February 2022."

The 2021 Malbec Concreto from Paraje Altamira, Uco Valley was aged in concrete. Purple in the glass. It has a crisp, expressive nose of fresh plum, sour cherry and hints of blackberry, herbs, violets and lavender. Free-flowing but relaxed in the mouth, the palate leaves behind a mixture of chalk and juicy freshness before the sustained, pure fruit finish. The year suited this style perfectly.

James Suckling 95
"Such a brooding nose with black pepper, violet and fresh blueberry and blackberry fruit. Spicy and tight on the palate, but super polished, racy and refined. Medium-to full-bodied red with beautiful tannin tension and expressive, floral notes in the finish. Exemplary and authentic! So delicious now. Why wait?"
About Zuccardi
FAMILY

Sebastian Zuccardi grew up in a family of strong visionary and innovative spirit. Since 1963 his grandfather, Alberto Zuccardi, engineer, planted the first acre of vines in Maipú, Mendoza. Familia Zuccardi has continued growing and developing until positionig itself as an important benchmark for Argentinas winemaking industry.

From his father, José Alberto Zuccardi, Sebastian inherited the determination and desire for lifelong pursuit of excellence.

Nowadays Sebastian, third generation of the family, is working in front of a young agricultural and winemaking team, responsible for producing wines with the highest standards of quality in the Uco Valley.

On his initiative, since 2008 the winery has an area of ??Research and Development, dedicated to the study of the terroir and the different variables that affect wine quality. The aim, in the words of Sebastian, is "not seek perfect wines, but those who express the place, the region".

VINEYARDS

The Uco Valley at the foot of the Andes, Mendoza, is a cultivated oasis at the the highest altitude. In this privileged location, our vineyards benefit from its cold and dry climate and wide temperature range.

The combination of multiple microclimates, altitudes, types of soil and the care of the vineyard, results in multiple terroirs. Zuccardi has the challenge to interpret it faithfully to express their identity in the wine.
