Based on Malbec (66 percent), this blend includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Ancellotta and Caladoc. Like all the latest releases from Zuccardi, this feels fresher than in the past, emphasizing red fruit and energy. It layers flavors of strawberries and cherries over generous tannins, the acidity intertwining with the fruit like the marbling in a steak.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92 Points
The 2015 Tito Zuccardi is a blend of 90% Malbec with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Ancellotta from the Zuccardi estate vineyards in Paraje Altamira. It fermented in concrete vats, and only 40% of the volume matured in used 500-liter oak barrels while the rest remained in the concrete vats. This is always from Altamira even though the percentages and even the varieties can change. They used some full clusters to give it more backbone. There are plenty of tannins here to develop in bottle. This changed in 2014, moving away from the very powerful, concentrated and oaky style of the past, and in 2015 it's even purer, fresher and more defined, with more bone and less fat. 20,000 bottles were filled in August 2016.
