La Posta

"We have tasted over a thousand wines since we began importing from Argentina. In that time, we have discovered a handful of grape growers whose results in the vineyards with specific varietals have been truly amazing--year in, year out. Our first encounter with many of these growers was at a posta del vinatero, or "tavern of the grape grower". Here they drank wine and spoke passionately for hours about their soils, their vines, and their quest for superior flavors in their grapes. We salute the hard work and skill of these growers by offering these vineyard-designated releases made solely with their special grapes. Each La Posta label illustrates a story of these individual families. One taste and you will welcome these growers into your own families, into your glass, and into your heart."

90  Wine & Spirits 
Wine & Spirits 90 "Domingo Fazzio planted the vineyards for this wine a decade ago at 3,500 feet in Tupungato, in the Uco Valley. It shows the ripe, voluptuous side of malbec in its sweet black cherry flavors and sweet spice, those characteristics floating on a cushion of soft, round tannins. Ready

90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2014 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard is from Altamira. The vineyard was originally 17 hectares and the owner planted an additional 12 (and is planting yet more), so there is room to grow. This is the most harmonious, elegant, and at the same time backward, of the three

Vinous Media 90 "Good deep red-ruby. The nose combines a port-like black cherry note with scents of violet and bitter chocolate. Despite an initial suggestion of stewed black fruits, the very ripe palate is spicy, juicy and vibrant, showing very good density and concentration as well as a light

La Posta 'Pizzella Vineyard' Malbec 2011
90  International Wine Cellar 
International Wine Cellar 90 "Bright full ruby. Aromas of dark fruits and bitter chocolate are complicated by smoky minerality and lifted by floral and spice notes. Fine-grained, generous and sweet; fuller-bodied than the Angel Paulucci offering but sound acidity gives it lovely life in the mouth.

Wine Advocate 90 "The 2010 Malbec Pizzella Family Vineyard also spent 14 months in 25% new French oak. Earthy minerals, spice box, tobacco, lavender, and black cherry compose the nose of this elegant, nicely proportioned, lengthy red that also offers outstanding value. It will provide considerable

Wine Spectator 90"Ripe and polished, with lush layers of raspberry, blueberry and fig fruit that glide over alluring spice notes, with well-integrated grip. The long, creamy finish shows a floral hint that helps add length. 10,000 cases made.
