Attractive floral aroma with ripe black cherry and liquorice on the palate.

Producer note

Matias Riccitelli is the son of renowned winemaker Jorge Riccitelli (Bodegas Norton). Using the experience, knowledge and passion passed down from his father, Matias decided to set up his very own winery in 2009. His vineyards cover 20 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.

Viticulture

Grapes are handpicked from old vines from Matias Riccitelli's three vineyards, Vistalba, Perdriel and El Cepillo. At the winery the grapes are hand sorted before vinification.

Vinification

Grapes are vinified in small concrete vats. After 4 pump-overs per day and a 30 day maceration period, the wine is transferred into French oak barrels to age for 16 months. The final wine is then clarified before bottling.
