2010 Zuccardi Tito Red
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.
