The flagship wine of the Zuccardi Winery, and a benchmark red for Mendoza, the 96 Point Zeta 2012 is a stunning blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, hand-selected from older vineyards in La Consulta and Gualtallary. The Wine Buyer was fortunate enough to visit this amazing place in the Uco Valley back in August, and share the thoughts of The Wine Advocate in declaring Zuccardi to be "one of the top names in Argentine wine."

Listed as the #18 selection on James Suckling's Top 100 Wines of the Andes, the Zuccardi Zeta 2012 was placed one spot above Paul Hobbs famed Cobos Volturno Malbec, which sells for $240 on release.

Vibrant and fresh, the Zeta 2012 is 85% Malbec and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented in small egg-shaped Amphora concrete tanks. Winemaker Sebastian Zuccardi is leading a new charge for less extraction, less oak and more acidity in his wines to truly express the terrior of Mendoza. There is a remarkable change from previous vintages of Zeta, with the 2012 showing a tremendous amount of class and pedigree. Their top-level wines are some of the best in Argentina, and should not be missed!

Rating
"A solid Super Mendoza wine with firm, polished tanninsand wonderful depth. Full and compressed with a long finish. I really appreciate the cool fruit and hints of spices and black pepper. A blend of mostly malbec with some cabernet sauvignon. From La Consulta and Tupungato respectively." James Suckling, 96 Points
