I’m a huge admirer of Zuccardi wines. Following my visit to Maipu in 2016, it was Zuccardi’s wines that most frequently impressed me. This Malbec is essentially an Argentinian ‘Port’. I receive a lot of port, which I generally give away. This was different – it didn’t seem especially potent and was ‘moreish’, which could end badly – so I’d share this with a table full of friends!
Tasting notes: Rich, smooth, heady (19%) wine. Sweet notes. Could work well with chocolate – as I discovered at an amazing wine/chocolate private tasting in Maipu…
