Zuccardi, Emma Zuccardi Bonarda, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina 2013
Very well made with complexity, depth and concentration. There is a lovely note of violet on the nose and palate, along with sweet fruit, vivid acidity, crunchy tannins and integrated oak. The purity of fruit is electrifying – this is a teenager full of energy and character, like a Beaujolais on steroids! An excellent example of an often challenging variety.
