2013 MATIAS RICCITELLI REPUBLICA DEL MALBEC, MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

$75.00

Carved from Riccitelli’s oldest vineyard planted in 1908, the 2013 Matias Riccitelli Republica Del Malbec is darker than a moonless night, and erupts from the glass with concentrated ripe berries, fresh violets, mocha, and spices.  The palate is full-bodied with a dense core of rich fruit, and finely threaded complexity that lets you know you’re drinking expensive wine…  The wine is made by Matias Riccitelli whose father is the head-winemaker at Bodegas Norton, and was the first South American to ever be named Winemaker of the Year by Wine Enthusiast magazine.  Matias worked harvests in New Zealand, Napa Valley, Europe and Australia before launching his brand, with a goal of creating a brand that would express the full potential of Argentine terroir.

Arising from ancient vines grown in the higher elevation sub-appellation of Vistalbain the Lujan de Cuyo region of Mendoza, this is the top wine produced by the Matias Riccitelli.  The wine is aged for 18 months in French oak, and now with around 5 years inside the bottle, this wine is absolutely rocking and promises another 5 years of enjoyment.  If you love full-bodied, concentrated and hedonistic Reds, I wouldn’t hesitate long to secure your case.

WOW!!! Deep Dark Black Purple swirling in the glass, aromas fill the air with Mountain Blackberries, and SO BIG it actually reminds me a lot of the 99-POINT PURPLE ANGEL…. if you enjoyed that style, this is for you.

By Far the BEST MALBEC I have EVER TASTED in MY LIFE so far! This One will sell-out lightening fast at this VIP PRICE… I highly and strongly recommend 2-3 CASES… it will be gone in a flash.

2013 MATIAS RICCITELLI REPUBLICA DEL MALBEC, MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

From Vinous, “(from the estate’s oldest vineyard, planted in 1908): Deep medium ruby. The oakiest of these wines on the nose, but with enough cassis and blackberry intensity to stand up to the mocha and chocolate notes. Lovely silky, ripe, intense wine with savory blackberry, dark chocolate and violet flavors. I like the restrained juicy sweetness and depth here. Finishes with scintillating dusty tannins.”
