"The 2016 Jos Zuccardi was produced with grapes (90% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) from Altamira and Gualtallary in the Valle de Uco. This is the continuation of the old Z bottling, but here the wine is aged mostly in 2,500-liter oak vats rather than in smaller barriques. There are herbal notes reminiscent of green tea leaves, spices and berries. The palate is serious and has chalky tannins, as they select grapes from places in the Valle de Uco that have limestone soils. It seems like they have found the way ahead for this wine in 2016; it's fine, precise and elegant. 40,000 bottles were filled in August 2018."
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.
