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.
Vintage
2014 was a year of concentrated rains in the month of March, which affected the
grapes grown in heavy soils with little permeability. The wines from the 2014 vintage
show elegance and freshness with good aromatics.
Vineyard
The grapes are handpicked at optimum maturity levels from Matias Riccitelli's three
vineyards: Vistalba, where the vineyard is over 60 years old; Perdriel, which has the
oldest vines at over 80 years old and El Cepillo, where the vines are 20 years old. The
average yield is 35 hectolitres per hectare and a green harvest is performed in
January, not only to manage the yields, but also to encourage concentration of
flavours in the remaining berries. The grapes were hand harvested in small 20
kilogram cases, in order to keep the integrity of each cluster.
Winemaking
The wine is a blend of Malbec with a third from each of the regions: Vistalba, Perdriel
and El Cepillo. A meticulous sorting of the grapes took place in order to select the
best quality berries, which were then vinified in small concrete vats, with indigenous
yeasts. A cold maceration took place for five days. The temperature was maintained
at 28°C during the fermentation, which was followed by 15 day maceration period.
The wine was then transferred into French oak barrels of first, second and third use
for 16 months.
Tasting Note
Concentrated and powerful, this is a very complex yet elegant wine with aromas of
wild blackberries, black cherries, liquorice and floral notes. Perfectly balanced with a
great structure, rounded palate and an elegant finish.
Serving Suggestion
An ideal match for grilled meats, hard cheeses and simply delicious with chocolate.
