La Posta Cocina Tinto 2011

Member Review by Argovino:

An inky bouquet with whiffs of latex and wildflowers already makes this budget option hopes of being a stellar deal, and in the mouth it’s luscious and fruit-filled, the tannins still a bit rough, but the bitterness controlled. More intense than it has a right to be – very drinkable now, perhaps even better in a year or two. Given the varietals, it’s a blend that could only come from Argentina!

Angel Paulucci's family has produced wine in Italy since the early 1800's, and Angel arrived in Mendoza with his parents in 1953 at the age of 21. In 1960, he planted his first Malbec vineyard, and in 1970 he planted a special block of Malbec vines in Ugarteche at the southern limit of the Lujan de Cuyo department. If you get Angel talking, plan to stay awhile—he will regale you with childhood stories of enemy soldiers firing bullets into his family's red wine barrels so that they could quench their thirst. And of course, he will tell you about his vineyard: very tight spacing, superficial irrigation, lime-laden soils, and Malbec grapes that make an old-timer smile. Read less
