The Zuccardi Amphora Project is a special, limited edition wine from the same vineyard as the Wine Advocate100 Point rated 2016 Finca Piedra Infinita, from the high altitude Paraje Altamira appellation in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. 100% Malbec grown in the unique rocky soils at the foothills of the Andes Mountains where the bunches ripen slowly developing great complexity and acidity that enables the wine to age gracefully for many years. After precise hand-picking, the wine was fermented with native yeasts and then aged entirely in concrete amphoras made from the rocks of the vineyards surrounding Zuccardi’s winery.
Intense dark red color with violet hues. This wine expresses layered earth and herbal characters interwoven with flavors of juicy raspberry and black cherry. Full-bodied and smooth with a long finish and a distinctive mineral texture that translates the texture of the unique soils of the vineyard. A wine of great structure and balance.
