2016 Familia Zuccardi "Jose Zuccardi" Malbec Uco Valley

SKU #1514004 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 José Zuccardi was produced with grapes (90% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) from Altamira and Gualtallary in the Valle de Uco. This is the continuation of the old Z bottling, but here the wine is aged mostly in 2,500-liter oak vats rather than in smaller barriques. There are herbal notes reminiscent of green tea leaves, spices and berries. The palate is serious and has chalky tannins, as they select grapes from places in the Valle de Uco that have limestone soils. It seems like they have found the way ahead for this wine in 2016; it's fine, precise and elegant. 40,000 bottles were filled in August 2018. (LG) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Explosively fruity aromas and flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plum tart are creamy and filled with rich savory and cooking spice accents. Powerfully structured, showing dark chocolate and mocha on the finish, with hints of dried mint. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. (KM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

93 points Tim Atkin MW "2016 Zuccardi José Zuccardi Uco Valley (14.5%) Named after Pepe (José) Zuccardi, who continues to run this inspirational winery alongside his son Sebastián, this is a firm, dense, ambitious blend of Malbec with 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that’s entirely aged in large foudres. Chewy, youthful and austere, with engaging minerality, it needs more time in bottle. 2022-28"
