WINE OVERVIEW

‘Never slow down’ and dance in Tupungato with Domingo Fazzio with his Malbec full of supple tannins, red currant, and mocha notes.

TASTING NOTES

The vibrant nose of red and black cherries and ripe plums combines 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.

EAT WITH

Prosciutto, hard cheeses, and pork.

More About La Posta

Growers sit at the heart of Argentina's winemaking culture. Estate fruit is far less common in Argentina, so even the most highly-regarded wineries rely on getting fruit from local growers. Laura Catena started La Posta, to pay homage to this growers, the backbone of the Mendoza wine industry. Each La Posta wine showcases Argentina’s best small-family growers and their individual passions with single-grower, single-vineyard wines. Each wine named after a grower family demonstrates the wide range of Malbec aroma and flavor profiles generated by distinct Mendoza appellations.

La Posta translates to “the tavern,” where the farmers meet to discuss their soils, their vines, their quest for superior flavors, and their passions for life. These wines are meant to express this passion.
