Winemaker Notes

Deep purple color with bluish reflections. Intense aromas of red and black fruit and cassis, raisins, dried figs and blueberry jam. The aging in French oak brings notes of snuff and chocolate. Soft and silky entrance, large structure with sweet and firm tannins. Long finish.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Q Malbec wants to showcase the variety in the Valle de Uco using grapes from Altamira and Chacayes. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and with some full clusters that were broken, and it matured in concrete and used French barriques. This differs from the Serie A in the vineyards; here, they look for more texture and less fruit, aiming for sharper and more austere, in the direction of Concreto. It's impressive how the wines from Zuccardi have improved in the last few years and how a wine at this price can have such precision and purity. No excess in any direction. Superb.

Wine Enthusiast
Pure black plum along with natural dust and spice notes make for an alluring nose. This blend of Malbec fruit from Paraje Altamira and Vista Flores, both subzones of the Valle de Uco, is direct and abrupt on the palate, with grit. Meaty gamy slightly salty berry flavors are intense on a juicy finish with rubbery tannins.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A robust red, with dark plum, dried cherry and wild herb flavors that are filled with muscular tannins. Intense dark chocolate notes linger on the racy finish. Drink now through 2021.
TA 90
Tim Atkin

Combining old wood and cement fermentation and ageing, this is typical of the modern Zuccardi approach, favouring fruit and tension over oak and extraction. Sappy, intense and deeply coloured with crunchy blackberry fruit and abundant perfume.

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.

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

View all products

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
