[ Home > La Posta Malbec Pizzella Vineyard ]|
Paula and Pablo Pizzella are relative newcomers to Mendoza Province, but their early success growing cool-climate Malbec grapes is quickly drawing attention (especially ours). Both parents are physical education teachers, and along with their three children get plenty of conditioning working this beautiful 10-hectare vineyard together. Their viticulture approach can be best described as “meticulous” with exacting uniformity and balance as the goals. The ranch in Altamira (La Consulta) where the vineyard is located is named Finca Coquena after the god and protector of goats, sheep, and llamas in the Andes mountains.
Tasting Notes/Food Pairing Suggestions:
Ripe and flashy, with a showy layer of mocha leading the way for spice cake, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors laid over a lush, creamy finish. Dense but lithe, with the fruit echoing through the finish.
