La Posta Fazzio Malbec 2017
The vibrant nose is of red and black cherries and ripe plums that combine with floral touches of violets and rose petals. It holds a nice tannic structure that is full on the palate. Vanilla, chocolate, and some spice appears to make it more complex. Unique recipe ideas include Smoked Chicken and blueberry Salad with Almonds and Drunken Goat Cheese, Roast Pork Tenderloin with Medjool Date, Olive and Walnut Relish, or Slow-Roasted Salmon with Blood Oranges and Fennel.
The stories of the people behind wine, the growers are oŌen overlooked. We discovered a handful of grape growers whose techniques and results in the vineyards are truly amazing. We met some of ArgenƟna’s best growers many years ago at a posta del vinatero, or “tavern of the grape grower”. Here we drank wine and spoke passionately for hours about their soils, their vines, their quest for superior flavors, and more importantly their passions for life. In collaboraƟon with Laura Catena and esteemed winemaker Estela Perineƫ, we salute the hard work and skill of these growers who bring the experience of ArgenƟna to you in every sip. Feel the wanderlust and romanƟcism and escape to ArgenƟna.
