Zuccardi Concreto Paraje Altamira Malbec

Concreto is a very important wine in my life. Starting to do it was a key step in our path, to free ourselves from the bonds and to deepen our confidence in the place we cultivate. In “Concrete” we seek to undress the wine, enhancing its expression of the place and showing the texture of the calcareous soils of Paraje Altamira bare. For this, we select only the most stony and calcareous parcels of the vineyard; and we vinify with the whole cluster as it was done in the past. Fermentation and aging are done completely in concrete vats without epoxy, seeking to avoid the influence of aromas and flavors that do not come from the vineyard, and to amplify the texture of the wine that transmits the energy of Paraje Altamira.

VINIFICATION

Fermentation in concrete vats without epoxy, with whole cluster and native yeasts, maceration for 20 days. Malolatic fermentation and aging in concrete vats. The 2017 harvest, despite being low in yields, produced grapes with a perfect health and quality in each region. Thanks to the climatic conditions, that were similar to a typical year of Mendoza, the wines produced had a very good balance.
