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 world, Matias used his experience, knowledge and passion and set up his own 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

This wine is made from two different vineyards located at the foot of the Andes Mountains. 50% of the Cabernet Franc grapes come from the Los Arbolitos Estate in Chacayes, which situated at 1,150 metres above sea level and planted in sandy soils. The other 50% of the grapes come from the Flo Estate, in Campo de los Andes, which sits slightly higher at 1,300 metres above sea level and is planted in gravel and rocky soils. The vineyard is carefully managed throughout the year, with deleafing and green harvesting being performed in January. Harvesting takes place during the latter part of April and is manually picked into small trays of 20 kilograms.

Winemaking

Following a meticulous double sorting, the clusters were destemmed and vinified in small concrete vats. Fermentation took place naturally, without any additions at controlled temperatures of 28°C. Pump overs took place to ensure the desired level of extraction and a post fermentation maceration lasted several weeks. 100% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels for over a year.

Tasting Note

Dark red color with violet shiny tones. A very complex and elegant wine with aromas of wild black berries, black cherries, liquorice and floral aromas. Perfectly balanced with a great structure, round and elegant finish.

Serving Suggestion

Best served with grilled meat, rich cheeses and chocolate.
