La Posta Pizzella Family Vineyard Malbec 2017
I also got to taste the 2017 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard and compare it with the previous vintage. 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. 360,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2018.
A big and smoky nose comes with spice and plenty of black fruit character. On the palate, this beefy Malbec is drawing and sinewy, with hard tannins. Rough but dark flavors of blackberry and plum finish with wood spice and coffee notes.
