Matías Riccitelli was born in Cafayete, Salta. He identifies as a traveler and a tireless dreamer. After countless harvests throughout the world, he decided to combine everything he has learned and dedicate himself to exploring the excellent terroirs of Mendoza and the teachings of his mentor, and father, Jorge Riccitelli.

The search for complexity and elegance led Riccitelli to these small vineyards located at the foot of the Andes mountains. The Gualtallary vineyard is 1400 meters above sea level with rocky, limestone soils. Vinified in small concrete eggs with wild yeasts without the addition of foreign additives at temperatures between 14ºC and 16ºC for several weeks.

Greenish yellow with golden tones on the glass. A complex, elegant, with aromas of white flowers, pear, peach and vanilla wine. Perfectly balanced, high volume, with an elegant finish.

Best served with all kinds of white meat and soft cheeses.

About the Winery

Matías Riccitelli

Matías Riccitelli was born in Cafayete, Salta. He identifies as a traveler and a tireless dreamer. After countless harvests throughout the world, he decided to combine everything he has learned and dedicate himself to exploring the excellent terroirs of Mendoza and the teachings of his mentor, and father, Jorge Riccitelli.

Matías started his boutique winery in 2009, located in Las Compuertas at 1100 meters above sea level. It is the highest area of Lujan de Cuyo, and here he tends 20 hectares of ungrafted old vineyards. Matías also works with small, independent growers that own their lands at the bottom of the Andes halfway between 1000 and 1700 meters above sea level - in Gualtallary, Chacayes, Altamira and La Carrera.

All harvests are conducted by hand and fermentation takes place in small concrete vats and concrete eggs. Purity and delicacy in winemaking are prized by Matías and great care is taken in preserving the fruit’s singularity in order to obtain vibrant wines.
