Sweetness: Dry

Wine Type: Red Wine

Natalie's Score: 89/100

Winemakers Paula and Pablo Pizzella grow the grapes in Altamira, Mendoza. This dark, meaty and full-bodied Argentine wine sources its Malbec grapes from local growers, the Pizzella Family Vineyard (Ed Lehrman and Nick Ramkowsky). This La Posta is more robust than the winery's Angel Paulucci red wine with more licorice, dark fruit, chocolate, espresso and mocha from oak aging. Finishes with a clean minerality on the palate. Pair with a meat-lover's pizza.

Malbec food pairings: lamb cutlets, beef tenderloin, prime rib.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Laura Catena, Las Posta Pizzella 2017 is a fantastic value Malbec under $20 from the Mendoza wine region. Winemakers Paula and Pablo Pizzella grow the grapes in Altamira, Mendoza. This dark, meaty and full-bodied Argentine wine sources its Malbec grapes from local growers, the Pizzella Family Vineyard (Ed Lehrman and Nick Ramkowsky). Lots of ripe dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, espresso and mocha from oak aging. Tannins are fine grained and this luscious red is smooth and ready to drink now. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
