More information on wine critics and ratings
The grapes are selected, destemmed and then crushed, undergoing cold maceration for 5 to 7 days before vinification with indigenous yeasts and fermented at 77° F (25 - 27°C). Then macerated for 20 days with daily remontage and delestage. Part of the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 10 months.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2018)
This is very fresh and bright with dark berries and spice and hints of rose stems. Medium body, easy tannins and a juicy and rich finish. Lovely concentration here.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2018)
The 2018 Malbec Serie A was produced in a transparent way, trying to express the varietal character of the grapes from the Valle de Uco. It has an herbal twist with a wild and spicy side, full of character and with very good freshness. 2018 was a return to a classically dry year with homogeneous ripeness. This is a wine with energy, brightness and freshness, with only 20% of the wine matured in used barriques—for logistical reasons more than trying to mark the wine with oak. So, it's fruit driven and pure, supple, medium-bodied with less volume than your average Malbec. 600,000 bottles produced. Rating: 91+

Tim Atkin (TA) : 90 Points (2017)
Seven different Uco Valley sub-regions are used to produce the Zuccardis’ impressively reliable Malbec, from Gualtallary to La Consulta. Dense and deeply coloured, this unoaked style is layered and intense, with black cherry and damson fruit and chalky freshness. 2018-23. Alcohol: 13.5%
