A brilliant New World take on Old World Rioja. More fruit forward, but retains the structure, spice, fine tannins, leather and chocolate. Big, bold and enjoyable. Built more for the table than the patio.
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 key due to its scarcity. In 1963 he planted a vineyard in the Maipu 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 is led by Sebastian Zuccardi. Following in the footsteps of his Grandfather, Alberto and his Father, Jose, 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.
