Zuccardi Q Cabernet Sauvignon: the elegant expression of the Uco Valley
Bodega Familia Zuccardi
Uco Valley - Mendoza
SAQ Price: $ 22.95
Zuccardi Family wines are well known among local consumers. And I personally like this winery for its versatile and innovative wines which are a trademark in Argentina and worldwide. The Q line, a series of exceptional varietals made from grapes from its high vineyards in the Uco Valley, are a different expression of the fruit and flavor explosion we are accustomed to when it comes to wines from the New World. I have had the opportunity to taste this elegant and structured Cabernet Sauvignon with a very subtle fruit both in the nose and in the mouth. It stands out fundamentally for its slightly tannic character, its unctuous palate, its floral notes ... A wine that I suggest to decant or oxygenate for a few minutes to round up its alcohol and thus to offer its maximum potential. Ideal companion for a tasty grilled steak or very juicy "empanadas", this wine is able to neutralize the flavors of the meat and the spices with a masterful delicacy.
Zuccardi Q Cabernet is a different Mendoza wine from the Uco Valley that I invite you to discover and taste. The peculiarities of this microclimate offer us wines of great body and structure, more elegant and less explosive. A line of wines that has captivated American palates and today, after receiving international recognition and scores, seeks to gain new adepts and fans in Québec lands. At a mid-range price, it is one of these wines that are positioning differently the argentine wines. Not an entry level, neither a Malbec! (MLF)
