La Posta Fazzio 2019 (Argentina: Mendoza) (ID# 3806)

Name La Posta Fazzio 2019 (ID# 3806)
Varietal Malbec
Region Argentina: Mendoza
Notes "This has such interesting, sweet and fragrant, violet-like florals with rich purple fruit and a faint, stony edge. The palate is very plush and rich and the velvety tannins carry so long and even. Black-cherry and cocoa-powder finish. A more serious vintage for this wine." (James Suckling) "The old-school label conjures up an Italian bottling from the 1950s; the wine, however, is firmly modern, gravelly and extracted in its blackberry fruit, polished with smoky oak. This is a generous red, with enough acidity to match it to a sausage pizza." (Wine & Spirits Magazine)

Additional Notes

" A Malbec from Tupungato, 50% aged in used barrels. The fragrant nose offers notes of plum and red currant at first, followed by secondary aromas of wood and herbs. Fleshy on the palate, it flows well, delivering a terse texture, well-defined flavors and a pleasant final perfume." (Vinous) "The 2019 Fazzio Malbec has a mixture of toasted and perfumed notes and reveals a polished palate and soft texture, with fine tannins in the finish." (Wine Advocate)
