Critical Acclaim

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 27th Aug 2015

"The red blend 2013 Tito Zuccardi feels a little mainstream next to wines like the Concreto, perhaps it’s the spicy, roasted aromas from the oak and high ripeness that usually implies alcohol. It’s mostly Malbec that is co-fermented with some 10% Cabernet and 12% of the unusual Italian red Ancelotta, all sourced from Altamira in the Valle de Uco. The blend might change with the vintage, but the origin will always be Altamira. Sebastian likes Ancelotta in the blends and this has a vegetal freshness. The nose mixes the violets and blue fruit with plenty of aromatic herbs and spices with a faint lactic hint. There is purity and elegance under the power, with fine minerality and a remarkable finish. 12,000 bottles." (92 pts.)

JS92 JamesSuckling.com Friday, May 20, 2016

"A dense and rich red with lots of blackberry and plums. Dark cherry too. Full body, ripe fruit yet remains fresh and focused. Stone texture. A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, ancellotta and caladoc. Drink now." (92 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
