Sebastián Zuccardi grew up in a family that had a strong visionary and innovative spirit. Since 1963, when his grandfather planted the first hectares of grapevines in Maipú, Mendoza, the Zuccardi family has not stopped growing and developing. It has become a leader in Argentine wine production. From his father, José Alberto Zuccardi, Sebastián inherited the determination and desire to constantly strive for excellence.
Today, Sebastián, third generation of the family, finds himself leading a young team of agricultural engineers and enologists, who are in charge of producing the highest quality wines in the Uco Valley. On his initiative, the winery has had a research and development area since 2008, dedicated to studying the terroir and the diverse variables that affect wine quality. The goal, in Sebastián’s own words, is “not to strive for perfect wines, but wines that express the place, the region.”
The grapes for the Zuccardi Apelacion Tupungato Chardonnay are sourced from selected high altitude vineyard in Tupungato, 1250 metres above sea level. Handcrafted by Sebastian Zuccardi, all the grapes were direct pressed. They wine is fermented in concrete and used oak barrels with indigenous yeasts. Aging “sur lie” without malolactic fermentation.
Zuccardi Apelacion Tupungato Chardonnay offers minerality, great character and balance to the final blend. This wine is full of citrus fruits, peach and pear with hints of nutty, vanilla nuances.
Try with grilled and roasted white meats. Perfect with chicken dishes.
