Zuccardi Uco Valley Malbec

The 2013 Zuccardi Malbec comes from the Uco Valley, 100km south of Mendoza. This wine shows the typicality of the Uco Valley really well. Vineyards there are established at more than 1000m in altitude. The intensity of the sunshine leads to thicker skins of the Malbec, and the cool nights extend the ripening period. 

This translates, in this wine, to a fresh aroma of maraschino cherries, while at the same time there is great intensity and a full mouthfeel on the palate. The structure is balanced, with a hint of alcoholic heat on the finish.

Score: 92/+=
