“Our wines are wines of the sun, but also of the soil.” – Sebastian Zuccardi.
Sebastián Zuccardi grew up in a family that had a strong visionary and innovative spirit. Since 1963, when his grandfather planted the first hectares of grapevines in Maipú, Mendoza, the Zuccardi family has not stopped growing and developing. It has become a leader in Argentine wine production. Rated as the world’s best vineyard by a panel of over 600 Sommeliers, wine experts and travel experts, Zuccardi is one of the most exciting names in all of wine.
Aged in concrete, the Poligonos Malbecs express the unique characteristics of their origins. Expressive and refined pure dark fruit flavours of plum and blackcurrant with earthy notes of herbs and spices. A long, fragrant and perfectly poised finish. Enjoy with a steak cooked rare with bernaise sauce.
The 2019 Polígonos Gualtallary Malbec used to be called Tupungato Alto, but it now lists Gualtallary on the label. It's the most structured of the Malbecs in the Polígonos range, a wine that is wild and fresh. After the Altamira, the citrus notes are back, but they're different from San Pablo; this is more herbal (dry herbs), with thyme and rockrose. All the range fermented and aged in concrete, trying to be faithful to the origin. This is simply superb and incredible for the price. 19,000 bottles were filled in August 2020.
94+/100 - Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
A Malbec from Gualtallary, aged in concrete and made in a reductive style. This is a mass of ripe dark fruit with a nose of fresh plum and country herbs. The palate is compressed and chalky, showing good athletic muscle as part of a lovely, wild, elemental profile. Very intense and fresh overall; the 14.2% alcohol is barely discernible.
92/100 - Joaquin Hidalgo, Vinous (Tasted August 2020)
