Finca Canal Uco 2016 Zuccardi
€ 111,26 (in. BTW)
The 2016 Finca Canal Uco comes from the traditional part of Altamira across the street from the Piedra Infinita vineyard, with slightly deeper soils, less limestone and more ripeness and slightly more generous wines. Here, they do their best to avoid sweetness in the wines through ripeness. But the wine is the expression of the place, a different interpretation of Altamira, with a little more fruit in the nose and some notes reminiscent of a wine from the Northern Rhône: olives and iron and slightly coarser tannins. There will be people that prefer the power here and others that like the austerity of Piedra Infinita. 6,300 bottles were filled in February 2017..

This is a deep and rich wine with balance and intensity. Dark fruit with iron and rust undertones. Full-bodied, chewy and tannic with a flavorful finish. Opulent yet subtle.
