Red and black ripe fruit aromas such as cherries, blackberries and figs, combined with notes of vanilla, chocolate and tobacco from oak ageing. A full bodied wine with luscious fruit flavors, silky tannins and a long finish. The Zuccardi family makes exceptional Tempranillo.
At the foot of the Andes Mountains, in the vast desert province of Mendoza sits Familia Zuccardi, Argentina's largest family-owned winery and one of the leading exporters of Argentine wines. In the U.S., two lines of Familia Zuccardi wines are available: Santa Julia and Familia Zuccardi "Q".
After receiving a bottle from the wine club, I bought several more. Very memorable wine for me after savoring the bright fruit and smooth finish.
Dry, medium-bodied Argentine tempranillo with a somewhat rough taste. Hints of dark berries.
