Matías Riccitelli Republica del Malbec 2014


Matías Riccitelli Republica del Malbec is made from fruit grown on old vines that were planted in Vistalba in Lujan de Cuyo in 1908. The vines are meticulously cared for and undergo deleafing and precise pruning during January. The manual harvest takes place in small trays of 20kg in order not to damage the grapes. A double hand sorting takes place prior to vinification to ensure the best grapes are selected. The grapes were vinified in small concrete tanks at controlled temperatures and then matured in French oak barrels for 18 months. 

Republica del Malbec is a wine of great intensity, with a concentrated and beautiful bouquet of wild blackberries, liquorice and spice. Remarkably balanced on the palate, this is an elegant and smooth wine with delicate and silky tannins.
