‘Enjoy the simpler times’ in La Consulta, Uco Valley with the Pizzella family and their rich Malbec full of dark fruit and spice.
A beautiful red and purple color with aromas of black cherries, dark 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. This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends.
It goes great with many foods, especially meat and barbeque. Unique recipe ideas include: Grilled Polenta with Wild Mushroom Ragout, Grilled Quail with Quinoa, Currant and Pine Nut Pilaf, or Wild Boar, Sage and Dried Cherry Risotto.
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.James Suckling June 2017
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.Wine Advocate June 2018
