Winemaker Notes

This Malbec captures the essence of Altamira's terroir in the Uco Valley, Mendoza.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
The aroma to this is etheral with dark berries, flowers and hints of salt and chalk. Full body with incredible texture and purity. Dark berries and blueberries but superb mouthfeel. Amazing quality from relatively young vines. Silk.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Aluvional Altamira is pure Malbec planted at 1,100 meters with big boulders and a high chalk content. It has a great sense of harmony, a little reticent and backward, but offers pure, delineated and intense aromas of crushed violets, blood orange and red berries with a strong earthy feeling running through. The palate is medium-bodied, with ripe, round tannins, a silky texture, good volume and great balance before finishing with a clean, intense floral aftertaste.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Broad, woody, buttery aromas blend with blackberry, cassis and grapy notes on a full-force bouquet. This Uco Valley Malbec is lush, fruity and chunky in feel, with ripe, spicy, earthy flavors of blackberry and fresh herbs. A long, woody, toasty finish confirms high quality, length and power; drink through 2022.

Familia Zuccardi Vineyards Winery Video

A few years before 1950, Ing. Alberto Zuccardi reaches Mendoza from his homeland in Tucuman where their great-grandparents had settled upon arriving in the Italian region of AveIino. In 1963, Alberto implanted a vineyard in the region of Maipu not knowing that it would begin the great passion of his life, the wine industry. In 1990, his son, Jose Alberto Zuccardi, assumed the General Director of the company.

In 2005, Sebastian Zuccardi, third generation of the family, lead the development of the new stage of the wines of the winery expansion into the Uco Valley. On his initiative, since 2008 the winery has an area of Research and Development dedicated to the study of the terroir and the different variables that affect wine production. In 2013 the construction of the new Zuccardi winery in the Uco Valley began. It opened in March 2016 with the premise of producing wines with identity, through the continuous exploration of the different terroirs of the Uco Valley.

The Zuccardi family’s approach to sustainability starts with the environment and people before any product. They’re dedicated to producing the highest quality wines through sustainable practices such as a focus on nurturing biodiversity, organic farming, efficient irrigation practices, composting, water treatment, comprehensive waste and recycling efforts, and the use of solar energy. The winery itself is designed to be naturally energy efficient by maximizing natural light and minimizing electricity consumption. Its concrete walls fulfill the function of a thermal insulator, the movements of liquid are caused by gravity and the concrete-designed vessels allow for a natural control of the temperature of the wine. As a third generation family-owned winery, the Zuccardi’s take seriously their responsibility to protect the environment, support the land, the farmers and uplift the local community. Through building schools, offering free education, fostering equality, banning child labor, and subsidizing health care, they’re not only elevating their wines and the Uco Valley as a world class wine region, but also giving the people who have contributed to their success a path forward and upward mobility for their own families.
