La Posta Fazzio Vineyard Malbec 2014


SKU 30044


A beautiful reddish purple color. 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. This is a fruit driven, fresh and well-structured wine that pairs great with meats like prosciutto or hard cheeses. 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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Malbec Fazzio Vineyard is from a large vineyard in Tupungato; the owner has 200 hectares. It has a floral nose that is quite fresh with notes of raspberries, strawberries and just a hint of spices that turn into aniseed with time in the glass. The palate is light to medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and very good freshness. This is a showy, fresh Malbec that is easy to drink and offered at a very good price.
