Matías Riccitelli has made wine under his own name in the area of Luján de Cuyo (just outside the city of Mendoza) since 2009. The son of well-known Argentine winemaker Jorge Riccitelli, Matías set out to make terroir-driven wines in a minimal-intervention style. All of his wines are harvested by hand and ferment with indigenous yeasts. Despite his very hands-off approach, and with zero added sulfites, this dark, full-bodied malbec comes across very cleanly. It aged in French oak and was bottled without fining or filtration. Spicy and smooth, it mixes plum and blueberry with a hint of vanilla and dense tannins. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
