97 points/'Platinum Award,' Decanter: "85% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Franc. Super fresh, with bright aromas of crunchy red fruit, plush plum, heady violet, spiced liquorice, rosemary and thyme, while the palate is laced with elegant, fine grained tannins and lush fruit. Very serious, but at the same time cheerful and delicious! Alcohol 14.5%. (DWWA 2022)"

94 points James Suckling: "Shows good depth of black cherries, scented violets, dried herbs, black licorice and cloves. A full-bodied malbec that shows tension on the palate, with fresh acidity and lots of dusty tannins. Nervy and nicely austere with a chalky finish. 85% malbec and 15% cabernet franc. Drink or hold. (3/22/22)"

93+ points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "Despite the very warm year and the slightly higher alcohol (14.5%), the 2020 Tito Zuccardi feels impressively fresh and balanced with no heat or ripeness. They harvested earlier, and the wine is fine-boned and velvety, with more fruit than the 2019 or 2021 that I tasted next to it. Here the Malbec, which is the majority, is fermented together with the Cabernet Franc, and the two varieties feel very integrated together. This transcends the difficulties of the vintage. It finishes very tasty, almost salty. 24,000 bottles produced. Drink: 2022-2030. (11/30/22)"
