Matias Riccitelli Vineyard Selection Cabernet Franc 2016.

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 deCuyo, Mendoza. This is a young and dynamic project in which Matias is seeking to express the full potential of Argentine terroir.Vineyard Vista Flores is located in the Uco Valley, the vineyard is eight years old (20%) with a yield of 35hl/ha. Deleafing and green picking is performed in January. Harvesting takes place from the second week to the end of April. Harvesting is performed manually in small trays of 20kg, in order to preserve the quality of the grapes. Meticulous double sorting is performed by hand, prior to vinification to ensure the selection of the best grapes.


Temperature controlled fermentation takes place at 28°C, with four pump overs and a long maceration of 30 days. 100% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. Final clarification with fresh egg whites.

Tasting Note

The Matias Riccitelli Cabernet Franc has a dark red color with violet shiny tones. This is a very complex and elegant red wine with aromas of wild black berries, blackcherries, liquorice and floral aromas. This Perfectly balanced Malbec has great structure with a round and elegant finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.


What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!


What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 


What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
