‘Enjoy the simpler times’ in La Consulta, Uco Valley with the Pizzella family and their rich Malbec full of dark fruit and spice.
A beautiful red and purple color with aromas of black cherries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and baker’s spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense, dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish. This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends.
It goes great with many foods, especially meat and barbeque. Unique recipe ideas include: Grilled Polenta with Wild Mushroom Ragout, Grilled Quail with Quinoa, Currant and Pine Nut Pilaf, or Wild Boar, Sage and Dried Cherry Risotto.
Nice bitter-chocolate and smoky notes, as well as lots of forest berries, make this generous and well structured malbec a rather complex wine. But the supple tannins are already so well integrated that you can enjoy it right away. Drink or hold.James Suckling March 2019
My favorite of the Malbecs in 2018 is the 2018 Pizzella Malbec, which is aromatic, floral, varietal and harmonious. It's clean and juicy, with almost unnoticeable tannins and a velvety texture. 360,000 bottles produced.The Wine Advocate October 2019
Bright ruby. Pure, dark aromas of blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate and minerals lifted by a lavender note. Pliant and seamless, offering a restrained sweetness to its dark berry, cherry and chocolate flavors. Mouthfilling without coming across as weighty, this Malbec finishes supple and broad, with refined tannins. These vines are now 17 years old and getting into their prime. (Incidentally, this wine was aged in 40% new French oak, vs. 10% for the Paulucci and no new oak for La Posta's other reds.)Vinous September 2019
