Joaquín Hildago of Antonio Galloni's Vinous rated this wine 91 points.  “The 2022 Malbec La Posta Pizzella comes from Paraje Altamira in the Uco Valley and was 50% aged in oak barrels, a fifth new and the rest used, while the other 50% went into stainless steel tanks.  Purple in the glass.  The nose presents violet and fresh plums with subtle herbal aromas. The 2022 is indulgent and juicy, with somewhat chalky tannins contributing to a taut, mouthwatering mouthfeel.  This is quintessential Altamira.”  (June  2023).

The 2020 Malbec Pizzella from Paraje Altamira, Uco Valley was half aged in 15% new barrels. The fragrant nose offers floral aromas such as violet and geranium over layers of fruit of good intensity. Juicy in the mouth with a hefty but nimble flow, this is a modern, nuanced wine with tangible grip.

The showy and aromatic 2020 Pizzella Malbec was produced with grapes from Altamira that come through in the chalky texture of the tannins. Other than that, it's varietal and clean, balanced and very attractive.

Juicy, with raspberry jelly and currant flavors that are fresh and lively. Ground spices on the finish. Drink now. 20,000 cases made, 14,800 cases imported.
