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 grapes are grown at an altitude of 1,100 to 1,400 metres above sea level in the Uco
Valley. At this elevation, the days are warm, but the nights are cold. 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 vines have an average age of 15
years and are trained according to the Vertical Shoot Position method (VSP). They are
grown in rocky and limestone soils. Matias Riccitelli is moving towards organic
management in the vineyard and the grapes are hand-harvested when they have
reached optimal maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected. 50% of the fruit was vinified as whole bunches and
50% of the grapes were destemmed. Fermentation took place with natural yeasts at
controlled temperatures of 25 to 28°C. During fermentation twice daily pigeage or cap
punch downs took place to extract flavour, colour and structure. The wine was
matured in small concrete vats to retain the purity of the fruit and was bottled without fining
or filtration.
Tasting Note
Pure fruit-driven notes of wild raspberry and ripe plum are layered with delicate floral
notes. Smooth and silky with fine tannins, this is a Malbec of great elegance.
