Product Overview

The 2017 La Posta Pizzella Malbec is 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 incredible with meat and barbeque.

93 Points - James Suckling
"100 Best Wines Under $30. Lots of black licorice to this malbec as well as citrus, bark and some moss. Tightly wound with firm tannins, driven acidity and a very minerally finish." -JS, Apr/2018

90 Points - Vinous
"Bright ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose; riper and deeper than the Paulucci Malbec. A step up in texture, plushness and depth, conveying an enticing saline character and a restrained sweetness to its flavors of dark raspberry, licorice, black cherry stomp and bitter chocolate. Finishes firmly dry, with serious but suave tannins and lingering notes of cocoa powder and baking spices." -ST, Jul/2018

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"I also got to taste the 2017 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard and compare it with the previous vintage. This is more transparent and riper than the 2016, with darker fruit and more abundant tannins, but it is still among the best of the 2017s. There are some fine tannins and good balance. 360,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2018." -LG, 6/29/18
