James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2019)
Lots of blackberry and blueberry character with stone and dried mint. It’s fermented with skins in concrete and aged there for eight months. This no-wood red is a joy.

Robert Parker (RP) : 95 Points (2018)
The 2018 Concreto Malbec is a selection of the stonier parts of their estate vineyards in Paraje Altamira, and they want the expression of the chalk in the soils to avoid any sweetness (that none of the wines have anyway). This is a wine that works very well in the cooler years like 2014, 2016 or this 2018. It fermented with full clusters, but they don't want a carbonic fermentation, so they break the grapes with their feet. All of this is destined to produce an austere and cold wine, cold and savory. The night before I tasted this, I had a bottle of the 2014 that is evolving at a glacial pace; it's still young and fresh, very primary. I think this is going to have a similar evolution in bottle. This is an incredible value.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 93 Points (2018)
Compact aromas of black plum, cassis and blackberry are reduced due to fermentation and aging in concrete, but with airing this Malbec opens like fan. A pure and juicy palate gets deeper and more layered with time in the glass. Plum, wild berry and savory flavors of wild herbs and stewed tomato finish with laser-like focus. Drink through 2025.

The front label of the Zuccardi Q range illustrates the stone walls of Zuccardi’s winery, rising from the soil and symbolising how the Andes mountains emerged millions of years ago.
Like the winery, Q Tempranillo is a wine of great structure, with notes of tobacco, leather and chocolate.
