Tempranillo hasn't achieved the success some thought it would in Argentina, but the Zuccardis have a better handle on this early ripening grape than most other producers. Sourced from Santa Rosa, this is soft and juicy with a hint of fresh tobacco. Less oaky than in the past. Drink: 2014-17. Score - 90. (Tim Atkin, MW, timatkin.com, 2014)
It shows intense purple color with ruby hues. The wine offers intense ripe fruit notes such as figs, plums, cherries and dried fruits. Well integrated with notes of vanilla, coconut, tobacco and smoke aromas due to aging. Soft entry on mouth with silky tannins and balanced acidity. Well developed with a good structure and a long finish.

Sourced from 40-year-old vines, Zuccardi Q Tempranillo exhibits an alluring bouquet of balsam wood, mineral, spice box, violets and blackberry. This sets the stage for a savoury, ripe, complex wine with excellent volume and length.Wine Advocate - 90 Points
