Malbec is the Argentinian flagship variety and this beautiful wine is a truly sublime interpretation. Juicy black fruits combine with violets and black pepper, with soft and ripe tannins leading a soft and opulent finish. Lovely on its own or with juicy red meat.

 

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

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. Most of those vineyards were planted at beginning of 20th century.

The grapes are cultivated in a very traditional way maintaining very low yields thanks to hand pruning and green harvest. These techniques allow for us 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.
