2019 Matias Riccitelli Tinto de la Casa

Mendoza, Argentina

Malbec forged from two of Matias Riccitelli's best vineyards to create a spicy, floral, svelt Malbec and a more elegant example of the variety than many in Mendoza.



About The Wine

Tinto de la Casa is a co-fermented blend of Malbec from two vineyards - one 1100m asl planted to 100 year old vines, and the other a 1400m asl with just 15 year old vines.

The two vineyards complement each other very well with the old vines bringing depth and gravitas and the younger vines from higher altitude bringing some floral nuances and a touch of freshness.

It's a slinky, sumptuous rendition of Argentina's flagship variety.

About Matias Riccitelli

Matias Riccitelli is a madman in Mendoza.

Young and full of energy, Matias is crafting a range of wines that are challenging many of the preconceptions of the Mendoza region.

His wines are made with a gentle hand and show a more rugged and raw side of the region. That is to say, his wines feel like they were grown, not made. In a sea of over-ripe, over-oaked Mendoza Malbec, they offer a refreshing change of pace.
