Producer Note
Matias Riccitelli is the son of renowned winemaker Jorge Riccitelli. Having worked at
some of the most prestigious wineries in Argentina and several vintages around the

winery in 2009. His vineyards cover 50 hectares located in three selected sites within
the premium growing region of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. This is a young and
dynamic project in which Matias is seeking to express the full potential of Argentine
terroir.
Vineyard
Vista Flores is located in the Uco Valley, the vineyard is eight years old (20%) with a
yield of 35hl/ha. The grapes are 100% Cabernet Franc. Deleafing and green picking

vinification to ensure the selection of the best grapes.

a long maceration of 30 days. 100% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 16
months. Final clarification with fresh egg whites.
