Zuccardi's flagship Malbec, perhaps South America's greatest red wine. Everything about this would suggest it's a supercharged monster, but it is very far from that. This is a super-fine wine, laced with mineral aromatics, graphite and tar. The fruit takes a backstage to the secondary flavours, and the tannins are pretty near perfect. A massively impressive use of power.

Argentina

Argentina has established its reputation in the wine world based on its superb Malbecs, but is far from being a one trick pony. It is a country with wide variations in climate from the high altitude sites of Salta, some now exceeding 3,000 metres, to the valleys of Mendoza where 15% ABV Malbecs are not uncommon.

The cooler regions are making some interesting wines from Cabernet Franc, and if there were a candidate for the country's flagship white variety, the highly aromatic Torrontes would be a strong contender.
