Bienvenidos! Here’s the latest review from our tastings:
Zuccardi Zeta Red Blend 2009
Province: MendozaZuccardi Zeta Red Blend 2009
Subregion: La Consulta; Tupungato; Santa Rosa
Grapes: 66% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Tempranillo
Aging: 12-14 months in new French oak
Exotic aromas of papaya and ripe mango, as well as a hint of cooked rice, suggest that this is no ordinary red blend from Mendoza – and they’re right. The purity of the flavors is astonishing, with tropical flavors mixing with traditional red berries, all without any undue bitterness. The finish is clean and mellow, inviting another sip.

We're making some changes around here!
As we near our first anniversary, we at Argovino want to make our site even better for all of our readers. We receive thousands of pageviews every month, and we want to make sure our content is useful and accessible. Here are some of the ways we're trying to improve.
A review almost every day. Instead of publishing our reviews in bulk once a week, hidden behind our homepage, we'll put a new review on our homepage almost every day. We'll feature the latest wines scored 90+ on the lefthand side of our pages.
New wine categories. It's great to see more varieties of wine from more provinces in Argentina arriving in the United States. We've reviewed enough bonardas and pinot noirs that we think they should have their own categories. The same goes for wines from La Rioja.
Wine subregions. You may already have noticed that, where possible, we're listing the subregions that provide the grapes for the wines we review. Argentina's terroir is every bit as varied and multifaceted as terroir in California or France, and we think it's important to take note of the local variations. Soon we'll have subregions listed for the wines in our back catalog, too.
If there are more ways we can enhance your experience, please let us know! You can always contact us via the link at the top of this page. We're here to help you, our readers, enjoy Argentine wine - and we hope you enjoy this site as well. Salud!
