Zuccardi Tito 2016

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Vinous 91 points - (this wine was named after Sebastian Zuccardi’s grandfather, who founded the winery in 1963; aged for six months in cement vats and recent French oak): Bright ruby-red. Lively aromas of cassis, black cherry and licorice. At once dense and fine-grained, conveying a youthfully medicinal character as well as a hint of wildness to its dark berry flavors. Finishes with building tannins--spicy, long and adamantly dry in a European way. Zuccardi told me that he may acidify his wines in the hottest years but not in 2018, 2016, 2015 or 2014..July/2018

James Suckling 91 points - A cool and linear red with a very fresh and dense palate. Medium body, bright and contemplative. This is a co-fermentation of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and ancellotta. Drink now..March/2018

Decanter 90 points - WORLD WINE AWARDS 2018 (SILVER): Stylish and bright offering a youthful energy. Persistent fresh red fruits and blossom, with fine grainy tannins. Lovely..May/2018

The Zuccardi wines I tasted in April were consistently superb and the estate’s top wines are among the finest being made in Argentina today. Zuccardi owns several prime sites in Uco Valley, including their two highest vineyards in Gualtallary and San Pablo, both of them rich in calcaire. Like some of his colleagues who are seeking to preserve terroir differences in their various wines, Sebastian Zuccardi vinifies mostly in concrete tanks and eggs, and also makes extensive use of concrete and used foudres to age his wine. He told me that he hasn’t purchased any new barriques in the past four years. The Zuccardi wines are hardly cheap but they are well worth seeking out. - From Argentina’s Wines Enter the World Stage (Jul 2018) by Stephen Tanzer

Zuccardi expressed through each of its wines, the essence of their origin, the unique and perfect combination of climate, soil, altitude and human work. Each line of Zuccardi wines represents a concept, a belief, a tribute, is the true expression of the vineyard where it was conceived.

Alcohol level: 13.5% Grape composition: 80% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Ancellotta
