Zuccardi Q Serie A Malbec Valley De Uco 2018 750mL
Intense and lively red-purple color. Intense red ripe fruit aromas such as prunes and cherries, with black pepper and tobacco. Can also detect chocolate, cherry liqueur, and spicy notes. Soft and velvety entry, firm tannins, with a lovely, juicy finish.
The 2018 Malbec Serie A was produced in a transparent way, trying to express the varietal character of the grapes from the Valle de Uco. It has an herbal twist with a wild and spicy side, full of character and with very good freshness. 2018 was a return to a classically dry year with homogeneous ripeness. This is a wine with energy, brightness and freshness, with only 20% of the wine matured in used barriques—for logistical reasons more than trying to mark the wine with oak. So, it's fruit driven and pure, supple, medium-bodied with less volume than your average Malbec. 600,000 bottles produced. Rating: 91+
