An intense and ultra-concentrated wine with an

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 old vines were planted in Las Compuertas in Lujan de Cuyo in 1908. The vines
are meticulously cared for and undergo deleafing 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.


Tasting Note
A Malbec of great intensity, with a concentrated and beautiful bouquet of wild
blackberries, liquorice and spice. Remarkably balanced on the palate, this is an
elegant and soft wine with silky tannins.
