Intro to Zuccardi Fortified Malbec NV –
Zuccardi Fortified Malbec NV is a rich ripe fruity fortified wine with a really long flavour.
Full tasting note and winemaking –
Zuccardi Fortified Malbec NV is a soft purple colour with aromas of over ripened plums, dried figs and nuts. It is a complex sweet wine with spicy tones of cinnamon and toasted almonds.
Vinified using classic fermentation to achieve residual sugar which is then fortified and aged for just over two years in aged French oak.
The Producer –
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. The family makes wines that express their origin, the essence of their soils and the extreme climate conditions of the vineyards in the heart of every glass.
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.
