Zuccardi Aluvional Paraje Altamira Malbec

Aluvional represents our aim to express the identity of different places in the Uco Valley. What makes those places different and what do they have in common? The Andes Mountains, an inexhaustible source of richness and diversity. When we began to explore the Uco Valley, we understood that the common denominator of its vineyards is the origin of its soils: alluvial. Soils originated millions of years ago, through the floods that with the force of the water, transported, from the mountain, all the rocks, sediments and minerals on which our vines grow today. This is why we find different places at the foot of the Cordillera, with an enormous heterogeneity of landscapes, soils and climates; of people who work them; of culture and history. And our challenge is to show that identity with transparency, that’s why we chose Malbec as a vehicle of expression.
