Zuccardi 2016 Finca Piedra Infinita
Zuccardi's highly praised Malbec from their Finca Pierdra Altimira. The vineyard is at 1,100 metres elevation which is not unusual for the Uco Valley, but it is the special rock formations found at this site which results in some of the greatest Malbecs in the world. These are thin soils, of chalk, what they call 'SuperCalcareo', or super limestone, and another block large rounded gravelly pebbles, which are free draining and naturally limit the yield of each vine.
This is only one of three wines from Argentina to ever receive the perfect score of 100pts from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
"I was blown away by the 2016 Finca Piedra Infinita, a wine I have been anticipating because I’ve seen the progression of the wine over the last few years. They use almost 40 different components to make this wine from small plots within the vineyard, especially the soils they call "supercalcáreo" (super limestone). The other type of soil they use is what they call "gravas calcáreas" (limestone gravels), and they don’t use any of the grapes from the deeper soils that go into the Q range. The wine has reached a stratospheric level of precision, symmetry and elegance in 2016 that is really captivating. Everything seems to be in its place; there is great harmony, the aromatics are clean and pure and the texture is like liquid chalk. There is power and elegance, energy and finesse. This is a really outstanding wine that summarizes the hard work at Zuccardi in the last few years. Bravo! 6,400 bottles were filled in February 2017." 100 Points Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
