Zuccardi Q Malbec is the blend of three unique vineyard sites. It shows a red violet color, with bluish hues. Intense red and black fruits aromas. Spicy, violet and chocolate nuances. Silky entry with great structure, soft and mature tannins. Intense fruity flavors and a persistent finish.
"The 2013 Malbec Q is sourced from La Consulta (Altamira) and Vista Flores. This wine has changed since 2010; now only 30% to 50% of the wine is oaked and the rest is matured in cement vats. The oak is imperceptible, and there are plenty of aromas of violets and blueberries with some aromatic herbs, all fruit. What Sebastian Zuccardi looks for is to have some herbal/countryside aromas and a lively palate with good acidity, which is what you find here. This is really tasty, with a fine, chalky tannin (from Altamira?) and just plain great. 120,000 bottles produced.
Zuccardi keeps going from strength to strength with their top-level wines. They have almost finished building their impressive all-cement winery in Altamira where they designed the cellar according to the vineyards they have (and not the other way 'round). Young Sebastián Zuccardi is relentlessly searching for cool-climate places (I visited and tasted some experimental wine produced form San Pablo in the Uco Valley), refocusing on Bonarda, which he's planting even in Altamira and the pure expression of the grape without any make-up as you can see in the new unoaked bottling Concreto. One of the top names from Argentine wine." -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
