2010 Zuccardi Tito Red

SKU #1143113 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Named after Sebastian Zuccardiís grandfather, who is still going strong in the winery at the ripe old age of ninety-one, the 2010 Tito Zuccardo is a blend of 83% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Caladoc (a cross between Malbec and Grenache.) Aged for 24 months in a combination of new second and third fill oak, it has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry leaf, black olive and mulchy aromas. The stem addition lends it more complexity and vibrancy. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, taut tannins and a very fresh, vivacious finish, exhibiting crisp blackberry, raspberry and graphite notes. There is a satisfying sense of completeness and harmony to this wine, which has the structure to age with style. Drink now-2025.  (10/ 2012)

This wine 83% is a blend of Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Caladoc (a cross between Malbec and Grenache). It's rich with spice and wild berries and has a great structure keeping those spicy, wild berries in line ;)

Country:

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
