The Tree Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree Malbec 2018
The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree Malbec from Matias Riccitelli is a Malbec made with passion and drive. This wine is designed to be drunk primarily with red meat, especially Argentine steaks but it can be enjoyed on it's own if you like full bodied Malbec with great structure and style. The colour achieved with this wine is almost opaque and it's complex fruit flavours will keep you coming back for more.
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. Grapes are handpicked from Matias Riccitelli's Perdriel vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo (50%) and Gualtallary (50%)in Uco Valley. At the winery the grapes are handsorted before vinification.
Grapes are vinified in small concrete vats. After 4 pumpovers per day and a 30 day maceration period, the wineis transferred into french oak barrels to age for 12 months. The final wine is then clarified before bottling.
Deep purple in color, with beautiful aromas of wild dark fruits, vanilla and chocolate in the nose. This is acomplex and rich vine with smooth ripe tannins and a long finish.
Great with a mixed grill, pasta with meat ragu or soft cheeses.
