Stephen Tanzer 2018- Vinous - La Posta Armando Pizzella Malbec 2017 - 90 Points Bright ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose; riper and deeper than the Paulucci Malbec. A step up in texture, plushness and depth, conveying an enticing saline character and a restrained sweetness to its flavors of
Robert Parker 2018. The Wine Advocate- La Posta Pizzella Malbec 2016 - 91 Points A Malbec from La Consulta, the 2016 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard was partly aged in used oak barrels for 12 months. This is clearly my favorite among all the single-vineyard reds, as it has varietal character and is clean, focused and fresh. It is clearl
Robert Parker 2018. The Wine Advocate- La Posta Pizzella Malbec 2017 - 90 Points This is more transparent and riper than the 2016, with darker fruit and more abundant tannins, but it is still among the best of the 2017s. There are some fine tannins and good balance.
2017 La Posta Pizzella Malbec review by Tim Atkin - 90 Points Wine Score: 90 Points. The best of the La Posta range comes from a family-owned vineyard in La Consulta. It’s a medium-bodied style that’s appropriately European in style, given the brand’s Italian inspiration, with plummy concentration supported by
2017 La Posta Pizzella Malbec review by James Suckling - 93 Points Wine Score: 93 Points: 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.
2016 La Posta Pizzella Malbec review by James Suckling - 92 Points Wine Score: 92 Points: This is refined and focused with dark fruit and minerals. Tea undertones. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful finish.
2015 La Posta Pizzella Malbec review by Patricio Tapia / Guía Descorchados - 93 Points Wine Score: 93 Points. My favorite of the producers of La Posta. This wine is firm, crunchy, red, with a large mouth
Robert Parker 2015 The Wine Advocate - La Posta Pizzella Malbec 2014 - 90 points 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 backwa

2008 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard 90 Points, Wine Spectator (Nov 30th 2009) and Smart Buys
Ripe and polished, with lush layers of raspberry, blueberry and fig fruit that glide over alluring spice notes, with well-integrated grip.
2008 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard 89 Points, Wine Advocate (Aug 2009) Issue WA # 184
The 2008 Malbec Pizzella Family received the same elevage as the Paulucci bottling. More saturated in color, it also delivers a more complex aromatic array, riper fruit, and a lengthy, pure finish.
2007 Malbec Pizzella Family 91 Points, Wine Spectator (Nov 15th 2008)
Ripe and flashy, with a showy layer of mocha leading the way for spice cake, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors laid over a lush, creamy finish.
2007 Malbec Pizzella Family 89 Points, Wine Advocate (Dec 2008) Issue WA #180
Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits an attractive perfume of cedar, leather, cinnamon, pepper, and black cherry

Bright ruby-red. Dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and spice aromas lifted by a floral element. Desely packed and spicy, with a fine-grained texture and juicy quality to the fruit.
