This Red Wine has black fruit aromas such as blueberries and blackberries followed by subtle herbal notes are found on the nose.
The palate is round with firm and mature tannins that give structure to the wine. Fresh and elegant due to plentiful acidity. Long finish.
Some years before 1950, engineer Alberto ‘Tito’ Zuccardi arrived in Mendoza from Tucumán, the small province in northwest Argentina where his Italian grandparents had settled many years before.
He began experimenting with new irrigation systems because, back then as is the case today, water management is strategic due to its scarcity. In 1963 he planted a vineyard in the Maipú region, aiming to show other neighbouring farmers how his irrigation system worked, not realising at the time that this would be the beginning of his life’s passion.
