Matias Riccitelli 'Riccitelli & Father' Malbec - Cabernet Franc, Mendoza, Argentina 2017

Regular price $ 74.20

The Riccitelli & Father 2017 is a blend of 70% Malbec from Las Compuertas and 30% Cabernet Franc de Chacayes, fermented separately. This year, there is a little more Cabernet Franc, which lifts the nose and gives it more complexity. The two varieties are mixed and placed in 2,000-litre oak foudres where the wine matures for 16 months. This is quite tight, serious and concentrated, with balance and influence, a wine that should mature very well in the bottle for a good decade. Very impressive.
