Concreto Malbec Zuccardi, Paraje Altamira, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina, 2021
100% Malbec unoaked, 50% whole bunch maceration. Native yeast fermentation and ageing in concrete amphorae vessels.
Zuccardi Concreto is made from grapes grown on a selection of chalky soils at our vineyards in Paraje Altamira.
"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 Sebastián 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."
