‘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.
A very pure, fresh array of ripe plum and berry aromas lead to a supple palate with medium body and a smooth, even finish.James Suckling February 2020
A Malbec from Altamira, 50% aged in barrels, 10% of them new. Dark purple in the glass. The nose is textbook: violets, raspberry and a hint of blueberry. Gentle and fluid on the tongue, delivering vibrant freshness, mild tannins with a little grip, and a pleasant, sustained finish and after taste.Vinous October 2020
