Matias Riccitelli Republica del Malbec Lujan de Cuyo 2018

An intense and generous wine with an abundance of
black forest fruits, a powerful and sensory experience.
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
2018 has been cited as a more classic year for Mendoza. Lower temperatures and
rainfall than previous vintages between February and April allowed the grapes to ripen
slowly and gradually, producing fresh wines with smooth tannins
Vineyard
The old vines were planted in Las Compuertas in Lujan de Cuyo in 1908. The vines are
meticulously cared for and undergo de-leafing and precise pruning during January. The
manual harvest takes place in small trays of 20kg in order not to damage the grapes. A
second manual sorting takes place prior to vinification to ensure the best grapes are
selected. "This wine is made in honour of all the immigrants who planted, worked and
taught us, gave us the blessing of our flagship varietal, who for over 100 years live in this
land, which has taken a unique identity in the world".
Winemaking
The grapes were vinified in French oak vats of 1,000-litre capacity. Maceration of five
days took place prior to fermentation with indigenous yeasts at controlled temperatures
of between 26 to 28°C. Post-fermentation maceration lasted 10 days, to extract the
desired levels of colour, flavour and fine tannins. 50% of the wine was aged in first,
second and third use barrels; the remaining 50% was aged in French oak foudres of
1,000 litre capacity for 18 months.
