2013 Superuco "Calcareo Granito - Tupungato" Malbec Uco Valley
This is so sexy and polished. Full-bodied, yet refined and long. Seamless and ethereal. Drink or hold.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Calcáreo Granito de Gualtallary starts with lactic notes followed by ripe plum and ripe skin aromas from grapes grown at higher altitude, closer to the sun. It is a bit wild. The palate is tremendously mineral, with a chalky texture and incredible length. The tannins are ultra-fine and the wine is compact, very harmonious. This is the more austere and mineral of the three. Awesome value! (LG)
Superuco is a very current look at the most exciting terroirs of Argentina's Uco Valley, as selected by the brothers Michelini, a merry band of guys who are simply looking to produce expressive, terroir-driven wines from their home base in the Uco Valley. They have made three beautiful wines, each one a bit different, reflecting its soil type and sub-district within the Uco Valley.
