FAMILIA ZUCCARDI ZETA VALLE DE UCO
Intense red violet colour. Complex nose that highlight ripe black fruit aromas such as blueberries and blackberries; subtle herbal notes. Round in mouth with firm and mature tannins that give structure to the wine. Fresh and elegant due to plentiful acidity. Long finish.
Works well with pan-roast lamb or beef fillet.
The Wine Advocate
"The 2012 Zeta is a blend of mostly Malbec from Altamira and some 10-15% of Cabernet Sauvignon from Gualtallary. This was previously a very traditional wine. However, the 2012 has seen a dramatic change. It used to be quite ripe and marked by new oak and now it's basically the opposite. Even in this warm vintage there is very good freshness (it has 14.5% alcohol) and only a small percentage of new oak is used with the rest kept in used barrels and cement vats. This might have extra complexity from the Cabernet that also adds backbone to the Malbec. Sebastian likes Cabernet from Gualtallary, because it retains the freshness. Quite a change even for the 2011, though surprisingly enough Sebastian tells me he considers 2012 a fresher vintage than 2011. 35,000 bottles produced."
