Tasting Notes

Pizzela Malbec gives both red and black berries (cherries and currants) with slightly cooked, spicy fruit, herbs, warm baking spices, clove, sandalwood and dark chocolate. It is medium plus in weight with moderate acidity. A really lovely example of classic Argentine Malbec.

WINE INFORMATION

Pizzella Malbec is sourced from Altamira in the La Consulta region of the Uco Valley. This single vineyard Malbec is aged for 12 months. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and then 20% is aged in new French oak barrels, 60% in 2nd and 3rd use French and American oak, and 20% is unoaked. The soil contains sandy loam, sand, silt, and clay with 20% stones covered by limestone. The elevation of the vineyard is around 3,600 feet and the ungrafted vines are on average 18 years old.

This brand was created in 2000 by Argentinian wine pioneer, Laura Catena, who wanted to tell the mutli-generational story of grower families who had lived in Argentina long term. “La Posta” means the “grape grower’s tavern” and Pizzella is the name of the family who farms the grapes. Luis Reginato is the winemaker.
