This staggeringly good Malbec is only 15 bucks!

Perfect for spring and summer barbecues - or any festive gathering - this magnificent Malbec will please wine drinkers of all levels.

With low yields and high-quality fruit, we've seen some fantastic Malbecs in the 2017 vintage - just none yet as good as this one! The 2017 La Posta Pizzella is, "among the best of the 2017s." The Wine Advocate

"Cassis, blackberry, and bitter chocolate on the nose... 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." Vinous

From burgers, to chicken or on its own with a wedge of cheese, you will smile from ear to ear knowing what you paid for this magnificent Malbec.

Summary


JAMES SUCKLING

93 / 100

"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."
