The Zuccardi Serie A range demonstrates the richness and diversity of Argentina's many micro-climates and soils. Serie A stands for "Argentina Series" as the way of expressing our most representative grape varieties by recognizing the best growing regions specific to each, and selecting top vineyard sites along the foothills of the Andes Mountains.

Intense and lively red-purple color. Intense red ripe fruit aromas such as prunes and cherries, with black pepper and tobacco. Can also detect chocolate, cherry liqueur, and spicy notes. Soft and velvety entry, firm tannins, with a lovely, juicy finish.

Bremer's February 2017 Staff Pick

Chosen by Amy, Bremer’s Wine and Liquor’s Marketing Director. When Amy isn’t busy searching for the next great product to feature online or out front helping a customer, she is probably talking about Syracuse Basketball… especially this time of year. Rich, full-bodied reds have become her favorite and when she spotted the label on this wine she just had to try it. From the first sip she knew it was going to be a great one. Stop by Bremer’s Wine and Liquor and pick up a bottle to see for yourself. (We hear it goes especially well with cheering on your favorite basketball team).

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Malbec Serie A is sourced from different vineyards across the Valle de Uco (San José, Los Árboles, Tupungato, El Peral, Gualtallary, Vista Flore and La Consulta) and was fermented in concrete vats an used 500-liter French oak barrels. There is more than fruit here, there is some expression of the soil, with subtle nuances and more complexity, hints of aromatic herbs and lower in alcohol (13%). The profile of all the wines is very clean, precise, juicy with good acidity. This is a superb example of it, with even some chalky sensations in the texture. Great value too. No less than 400,000 bottles were produced in 2016. There is only one lot, blended in June, and then bottled at different times. What I tasted had been bottled in September 2016.
