Matias Riccitelli Vineyard Selection Malbec

Matias Riccitelli Vineyard Selection Malbec has a dark red colour with violet shiny tones. A very complex and elegant wine with aromas of wild black berries, black cherries, liquorice and floral aromas. Perfectly balanced with a great structure, round and elegant finish.

Since 2009 Matias Riccitelli has been the owner and winemaker of this project. He has been a winemaker at one of the most prestigious wineries in Argentina, who, after working in several vintages around the world, decided to run his personal project which is based 100% on top Malbec. Winemaking runs in Matias’s Blood as his father was the first South American awarded ‘Winemaker of the Year’ by Wine Enthusiast magazine at Bodega Norton.

The Winery is settled in the heart of Vistalba, in the region of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. Today Riccitelli Wines manages 20 hectares, divided in three different vineyards at the foot of the Andes Mountains between 980 and 1120 m.a.s.l.

Grapes are for Matias Riccitelli Vineyard Selection Malbec are handpicked from old vines from Matias Riccetelli’s three vineyards, Vistalba, Perdrieland and El Cepillo in which most of the vines were planted early in the 20th century. At the winery the grapes are hand sorted before vinification.

The grapes are cultivated in a very traditional way maintaining very low yields thanks to hand pruning and green harvest. These techniques allow for them to obtain ecologically fit and high quality grapes. Harvest is performed manually in small trays of 20 Kilos in order not to damage the grapes.

After being sorted the grapes are sent to small concrete tanks with a temperature controled system.
This is a young and dynamic project, in which Matias wants to express the full potential of Argentine Terroirs while making top wines with constant care and personal style – essential elements for great quality – Riccitelli Wines combine a high level of technology, the richness of the native soil of their vineyards, and new winemaking in Argentina.
