juicy black fruits combine with violets and black pepper, with soft and ripe tannins leading a soft and opulent finish. lovely on its own or with juicy red meat.
“the most impressive progression in the last few years could be that of matías riccitelli. it’s always interesting and fun tasting with riccitelli, who this year showed me some new bottlings and the consolidation of some labels that were new the previous time. his business has grown to 400,000 bottles per vintage, and the quality keeps going up. when you can grow quality and quantity at the same time, it means you must be doing something right. riccitelli is one of the names to really follow in argentina, one of the greatest progressions in the last few years and one of the more exciting portfolios i tasted in argentina in this round”. – luis gutierrez, wine advocate #237
