Zuccardi Serie A Malbec


Familia Zuccardi Serie A Malbec is an intense wine of color, aromas, and flavors. 80mph intense. Two-minute-warning-have-the-ball-down-by-three-points intense. Double rainbow intense. You’ll be overcome with red ripe fruits like plums, blackberries, and raspberries, but somehow it will balance with hints of soft vanilla oak. Complex with a long (what else?) intense finish, it’s a great partner to big meats, especially if they’ve been on the grill. Around $11. 





Tastes like: 












plums, blackberries, raspberries, vanilla, oak



Drink with:


grilled steak

My focus is good wine on a budget for everyday people. So every Tuesday I’ll post a wine-of-the-moment with simple tasting notes and a recipe pairing. The notes won’t be overly detailed or profound, but they’re not meant to be. Instead, they’re meant to be fun with a bit of insight into some bottles worth exploring. Enjoy!
