2020 THIS IS NOT ANOTHER LOVELY MALBEC, Riccitelli. Uco Valley, Argentina

Bin:  605

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Area:

This is from three different vineyards within Lujan de Cuyo, one of the best sub-regions within the larger Mendoza area. The vines are at altitudes of 1,100 to 1,400 metres above sea-level.

Producer:

Mattias Riccitelli worked for various other wineries before setting up his own project in 2009. He is at the forefront of ‘modern’ Argentinian winemaking, producing wines of balance and freshness, with innovative labels and a great attitude in general.
This is a bottling of young vines, half fermented as whole bunches (to add aromatics and freshness) and matured only in concrete, without any wood ageing (also to preserve the natural vivacity of Malbec, rather than layer it with the vanilla sweetness that oak often adds).

Old Bridge rating:

Certainly different to the standard, smooth, soft style of much commercial Malbec, but this still has the richness and depth to keep lovers of the traditional version happy, whilst providing something new and exciting for those looking for a more modern take on the genre.
