Matias Riccitelli Wines The Party Malbec 2021
Matías Riccitelli started his boutique winery in 2009, located in Las Compuertas at 1100 meters above sea level. It is the highest area of Lujan de Cuyo, and here he tends 20 hectares of ungrafted old vineyards. Matías also works with small, independent growers that own their lands at the bottom of the Andes halfway between 1000 and 1700 meters above sea level – in Gualtallary, Chacayes, Altamira and La Carrera.
All harvests are conducted by hand and fermentation takes place in small concrete vats and concrete eggs. Purity and delicacy in winemaking are prized by Matías and great care is taken in preserving the fruit’s singularity in order to obtain vibrant wines.
This is an innovative style of Malbec from the Matias Riccitelli micro winery where they experiment with an array of techniques for coaxing the best expressions from Malbec grapes. This opulent red has a lively floral character and great purity to the raspberry and plum fruit. This is a wine of great elegance!
