93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The third vintage of the 2015 José Zuccardi was produced with grapes from Altamira and Gualtallary in the Valle de Uco. It's mostly Malbec but contains some 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak foudres. It feels riper and a little rounder than the 2014, but the sharpness of all of their wines—the focus and precision—is impressive irrespective of the vintage. 32,000 bottles were filled in February 2017." -LG, 6/29/18

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Big, with robust flavors of dried raspberry, cherry tart and red currant that are well-framed. The juicy finish is backed by lively acidity, lingering with minerally snap and hints of white pepper. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported." -KM, 8/31/20

91+ Points - Vinous
"Deep, bright ruby. More bound-up than the 2017 Tito Zuccardi bottling, showing less floral/spicy lift in the early going and a more medicinal quality. Richer and deeper in the mouth (this is actually the highest in alcohol of this year's Zuccardi releases) but in a drier and less forthcoming style, conveying more weight and thickness but avoiding heaviness. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and sneaky rising length. The 2017 Tito may be less concentrated and powerful than this wine but it has more tension. Incidentally, this wine was bottled in 2017 but is only now being released. (14.5% alcohol; a blend from numerous Uco Valley sites featuring calcium carbonate soil; fermented in concrete, then aged in mostly used foudres)" -ST, Sep/2019
