“From Chili to Nachos, A Malbec No-Brainer!”

There are many good Malbecs - just not as good as this one!

By David Gettenberg

You are reading this correctly! 

Staggeringly good, the 2020 La Posta "Pizzella" Malbec is only 16 bucks!

Buy this pantry essential by the case(s)!

There are a handful of good Malbecs from the 2020 vintage - just not as good as this one! For the money, you cannot beat the value of this juicy, versatile red. You will smile from ear to ear knowing what you paid for this magnificent Malbec.

At 3,600 feet, the high elevation vineyards made of clay and sandy loam give this wine its lift and texture. 

"Showy and aromatic... clean, balanced, and very attractive." Wine Advocate

"Juicy in the mouth with a hefty but nimble flow, this is a modern, nuanced wine with tangible grip."Vinous

We love the wine's signature fig, plum, sandalwood, and spice notes. 

Whether you need an everyday red, a red for the "big game," or fireside with a bowl of chili, this delicious Malbec belongs among your essentials. 

It is also a fantastic pairing for more sophisticated cuisine such as grilled polenta with wild mushroom ragout, roasted quail with quinoa, even a currant and pine nut pilaf.

Enjoy!

Press & Tasting Notes
92

“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.
