Zuccardi Q Malbec 2018

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaQ stands for quality, and it is how the best blocks are marked at Zuccardi. The nose opens with a touch of smoke and toast mixed with violets and minerals. It is both soft and generous but never sweet, showing ripe, peppery, blue and black fruits with dense but svelte tannins that effortlessly combine to offer serious complexity at a fair price. The wine is native fermented and spends about three weeks on skins before going through a concrete and oak mix for 15 months to build the structure. Food friendly and ready to drink, it will age with little trouble.Tasted: 26 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.95 select private retailers QC 20.00 NF 22.00 Producer: Familia ZuccardiDistributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
