Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wine Advocate issue #203 Oct 2012
Named after Sebastian Zuccardi’s grandfather, who is still going strong in the winery at the ripe old age of ninety-one, the 2010 Tito Zuccardo is a blend of 83% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Caladoc (a cross between Malbec and Grenache.) Aged for 24 months in a combination of new second and third fill oak, it has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry leaf, black olive and mulchy aromas. The stem addition lends it more complexity and vibrancy. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, taut tannins and a very fresh, vivacious finish, exhibiting crisp blackberry, raspberry and graphite notes. There is a satisfying sense of completeness and harmony to this wine, which has the structure to age with style. Drink now-2025.

This is plush, with generous crushed black cherry, cassis and mineral notes on a full yet fresh frame. The finish delivers darker mocha and licorice accents. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Ancellotta. 600 cases made.



Winemaker Notes

Intense red ruby color with purple hues. Very complex nose with black fruit aromas such as blackberry, plum and cherries. Hints of wild herbs, clove and black pepper. Silky entry with soft, juicy tannins. Very long finish.
