Familia Zuccardi Aluvional Gualtallary 2019

$93

Slightly angular, but a lovely expression nevertheless, showing dried violet and a hint of eucalyptus up front, with layers of raspberry and olallieberry. Tremendous acidity adds tension and extends the flavors on to the lengthy finish, which features fine tannins, an echo of the core flavors and a hint of hibiscus. Drink now through 2034. 1,500 cases made, 350 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Malbec

Malbec originated in Southwest France, where it's also known as Côt; it is still the main grape in the area's top appellation, Cahors. It was once a significant blending partner in Bordeaux's reds, but has largely fallen out of favor there. Farther north in France, it has a presence in the Loire Valley. However, Malbec today is most associated with Argentina, where it has become the signature red grape. It's also grown in other New World regions, including Chile and Australia.
