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
The Trousseau grapes come from the traditional vine growing sites of Allen and Ing
Heuergo in the province of Rio Negro, Patagonia, approximately half way between the
Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Situated on the 39° latitude south, the
sunlight exposure is more intense than northern areas, but at this latitude the nights are
much colder. This daily diurnal temperature range is excellent for the production of
quality grapes; the nightly cooling-off extends the ripening period, allowing the grapes
to develop rich varietal characteristics while retaining balancing acidity. The lowyielding vines were planted at the beginning of the 1970s and they are ungrafted
allowing for complete interaction between the silty soils and the vine. The vines are
cultivated naturally following organic principles resulting in wines that are expressive of
the terroir and their varietal characteristics. The grapes are hand-harvested once they
have reached optimal maturity. The long-forgotten variety of Trousseau is a dark
skinned variety that originated in the Jura, France and is a synonym for Bastardo.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted and selected. The fruit, of which 30% was kept as
whole-bunches, was fermented in small French oak vats with indigenous yeasts at
temperatures of 26 to 28°C. The wine was aged for a further eight months in French oak
before being bottled without being fined or filtered.
