Zoom with us to Mendoza, Argentina on Thursday, September 17th, 6-7:30 PM to sip and savor the wines of Familia Zuccardi made by the world-renowned Sebastián Zuccardi!
Sebastián is the third generation of a winemaking dynasty that began when his grandfather Alberto purchased vineyards in Maipú, Mendoza and became a pioneer in the production of high-quality, sustainably-crafted wines. His father, José Alberto, established Santa Julia Winery and expanded the family’s vineyard holdings, including acreage in the prized Uco Valley. Once the viticultural gifts of the Uco Valley were revealed to them it was no question that this would be the site of their second winery. Bodega Zuccardi opened in 2016; since then it has been named World’s Best Winery and Sebastián, dubbed a “terroirist” by Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate has received numerous high ratings for his wines from the press.
Here are the wines that will be featured during our Zoom Tasting Event:
2017 Zuccardi Q Malbec, 94 points, James Suckling:
"Beautiful texture to this with dark berry and blueberry character and hints of flowers and cedar. Medium to full-body with a pretty opened palate and a long and flavorful finish. Round and polished tannins. No new wood. Drink now or hold." (3/27/19)
2016 Zuccardi Tito, 91 points, James Suckling:
“A cool and linear red with a very fresh and dense palate. Medium body, bright and contemplative. This is a co-fermentation of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Ancellotta.” (4/5/18)
2017 Zuccardi Concreto, 96 points, James Suckling:
“This is a unique wine for Mendoza with a cool-fruit and serious slate character. Undertones of dried herbs and bark. Full body, integrated fruit and tannins. Wet earth, too. Reminds me of the reds in Spain's Galicia, but so new in Argentina. Drink now but better in 2020” (4/5/18)
