Producer Information

Sebastian Zuccardi, grandson of the founder, is now in charge at this trailblazing family winery. Rapidly establishing himself as one of the great winemaking talents of Argentina, he is determined to alter the world's perception of Malbec and evolve our understanding of what Mendoza has to offer. He talks of not seeking perfect wines, but those that express the place, the region. His vision is not altitude, it is terroir: terroir honed and shaped by the icy Andes flood waters whose power brought the rocks and boulders that now form the sub-soils of many of the very best vineyards. Frequently pictured waist deep in a muddy hole in one of these vineyards, these rocks not only form part of the vineyard but in their new winery, they form the building and the fermentation vessels. At the forefront of the movement towards greater fruit purity, Sebastian's wines are the most convincing argument for the use of concrete fermentation and ageing vessels and, as a result, for the movement towards a greater understanding of the potential of Malbec and of Argentina in general. Though we may be a little biased, it is fair to say that Sebastian is amongst the most influential young winemakers on the planet.

Production

‘Polígono’ refers to the many faces of a vineyard. Sebastián Zuccardi explores those unique vineyard characteristics through precise grape selections from the individual micro regions of the Uco Valley. Polígonos del Valle de Uco is a range of wines from selected vineyards that reveal the differences in altitude, soil and climate that characterise the sub-regions of Paraje Altamira and Gualtallary.

Alluvial soil well stratied. Small middle eroded stone on a sandy-clay layer.

The 2020 vintage will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most particular in Mendoza. Once again the old adage that leads us to say “no two vintages are the same” has taken on special significance: it is difficult to imagine two vintages as different from each other as 2019 and 2020, fundamentally for their climate development. The current one has been a great quality vintage, characterized by its limited yields, between 10% and 20% lower than the historical values according to the areas; and due to the high speed of maturity, which made it one of the fastest and most challenging we can remember

Direct pressing. Maceration done in concrete vats (no epoxi) with indigenous yeast. Malolactic fermentation in concrete vats.

Tasting Notes

Poligonos is a selection of varietals that are faithfully displayed, according to the town where they come from. There is a rich and deep expression of the of the San Pablo vineyard in this wonderfully crisp, fresh, honest wine.

Ripe-apricot, pear, mango-skin and flint aromas. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity. Concentrated and layered with ripe-fruit flavors and a fresh finish.
