Laura Catena - daughter of the famous wine pioneer Nicolas Catena - set up the series La Posta wines to give the smaller winegrowers of Mendoza their own stage, instead of a nameless place in the local cooperative. The wines are called La Posta, after the typical local pub that you will find everywhere on the side of the road.

Domingo Fazzio, aka the dancing farmer who loves women, is the 3rd generation. His Italian grandfather traveled to Argentina in 1917 for a better life. Domingo expanded the family business in 2005 and bought 100 hectares of land in Tupungato, where this wine comes from. He named him 'El Nuño Francisco' to honor his father. The soil consists of loamy soil, with calcareous stony subsoil, good for root development and good drainage. The vineyard in the Uco Valley is ideally located at an altitude of 1100 meters, on the Tunas River, from which the irrigation water comes. Due to the high location of the vineyard, it is a wonderfully intense malbec. The wine matures for one year in French oak barrels used for 2/3 years, the other part in stainless steel tanks. That rounds off this wine beautifully, and produces a delicious, generous and complex red wine.

Due to the high location of the vineyard, it is a wonderfully intense Malbec. The La Posta Fazzio Malbec (Domingo Fazzio) has concentrated black fruit, with vanilla, toast, balsamic, the taste is ripe and peppery, powerful and intense, with good acidity due to the altitude. Powerful and intense red wine. Delicious with merguez sausages, ribeye from the grill, lamb roulade with rosemary, matured cheeses.

Vineyard for 2021 La Posta Fazzio Malbec

In the Argentinian tradition, La Posta is a tavern where the (wine) farmers come together for a glass of wine, to share stories about the harvest and of course for their daily siesta. Each La Posta label illustrates a story of these individual families. One sip full of flavor and you will welcome these breeders into your own family, into your glass and into your heart.
