    La Posta's Pizzella Malbec is ready to drink now with the meaty dishes of your choice! Pulled pork sliders are the perfect companion for your first glass, or how about balsamic grilled radicchio with Pecorino shaved over the top? The sweet bitter of the dish is delicious against the rich, dark fruit. Grill some well-seasoned lamb cutlets and eggplant slices for arugula, lamb and eggplant paninis with mint aioli. The char on the meat and eggplant and the beautifully toasted bread will take your breath away with a sip of the Pizzella. If it's pasta you're craving, make it a hearty tomato sauce with chorizo and fresh thyme. It'll go hand in hand with this La Posta.

    James Suckling:  "This is refined and focused with dark fruit and minerals. Tea undertones. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Precise. Drink now." Jun 2017

    Winery:  "Beautiful red/purple color with aromas of black cherries, fruits, dark chocolate and baker’s spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish. Don’t be concerned if you find yourself inhaling deeply from your glass, over and over—it is just your nose’s way of telling you that it wants its fair share! This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends. Goes great with many foods, especially meat, barbecue."
