‘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.
Blackberry, currant and violet. It’s medium-to full-bodied with round, lightly chewy tannins. Fleshy texture on the palate with freshness and a silky feel. Juicy, fruity finish with some length. Drink or hold.James Suckling February 2021
The showy and aromatic 2020 Pizzella Malbec was produced with grapes from Altamira that come through in the chalky texture of the tannins. Other than that, it's varietal and clean, balanced and very attractive.Wine Advocate March 2021
