The 2022 La Posta, "Pizzella" Malbec was a Merchant's Pick

From Chili to Nachos, A Malbec No-Brainer!

June 10, 2024

This gorgeous Malbec is only 18 bucks! 

 

Staggeringly good, the 2022 La Posta "Pizzella" Malbec is made by Luis Reginato, who cut his teeth working for famous Malbec producers Nicolas and Laura Catena. 


For the money, you cannot beat the value of this Argentinian red. 

 

At 3,600 feet, the high-elevation vineyards made of clay and sandy loam give this wine its gorgeous texture and freshness. A ripe, spicy malbec here full of fresh blackberries, blueberries, some sweet dark spice, black wood and dark chocolate. Plenty of oak spices in the energetic finish." James Suckling

 

Whether you need an everyday red, a red for summer barbecues, or enjoying grilled sliders (of any kind), this delicious Malbec belongs among your essentials.

  

Feel free to pair it with even more sophisticated cuisine, such as grilled polenta with wild mushroom ragout, roasted quail with quinoa, or even a currant and pine nut pilaf.

 

After the first sip, La Posta will forever be among your go-to Malbecs. 


 

You will smile from ear to ear knowing what you paid for this magnificent Malbec.

 

Enjoy!

Few Malbecs are as good as or offer the value of this gem!

“Freshness and a silky feel.”

James Suckling • 92 / 100

"Blackberry, currant and violet. It’s medium-to full-bodied with round, lightly chewy tannins. Fleshy texture on the palate with freshness and a silky feel. Juicy, fruity finish with some length."

91

“Layers of fruit of good intensity.”

Vinous • 91 / 100

"The 2020 Malbec Pizzella from Paraje Altamira, Uco Valley was half aged in 15% new barrels. The fragrant nose offers floral aromas such as violet and geranium over layers of fruit of good intensity. Juicy in the mouth with a hefty but nimble flow, this is a modern, nuanced wine with tangible grip.

90

“Showy and aromatic.”

Wine Advocate • 90 / 100

"The showy and aromatic 2020 Pizzella Malbec was produced with grapes from Altamira that come through in the chalky texture of the tannins. Other than that, it's varietal and clean, balanced and very attractive.
