Zuccardi / 2017 Poligonos Tupungato Alto Malbec

COUNTRY/REGION: Argentina/Tupungato, Uco Valley.

GRAPES: 100% Malbec.

ABV: 14%

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.

VINEYARDS: Alluvial soils, with gravel covered with calcium carbonate at a shallow depth, caliche and calcareous sands.

VINTAGE: A Great Vintage. A season that can be ranked in the classic parameters for Mendoza. Dry, sunny days, cool nights and regular yields. Grapes that will give us outstanding wines that could be enjoyed for many years.

WINEMAKING: Grape movement by gravity, fermentation in concrete vats with native yeasts, maceration of 20- 25 days. Aged in barrels and concrete vats. Bottled unfiltered.
