matiasrHaving been mentored from a young age by his father, internationally acclaimed Norton winemaker Jorge Riccitelli, 34-year-old Riccitelli Jnr is now making wines in his own right. For many years Riccitelli was head winemaker at Fabre Montmayou, but since last year he has been fully committed to his family project, Matias Riccitelli Wines, with award-winning results. Part of the new generation of winemakers, Matias is one of the most promising on the scene, making well balanced and modern wines from a selection of vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. While his Malbecs continue to accrue awards, the latest focus of the winery is on bringing out a wider portfolio including premium oak-aged Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc, an unoaked Pinot Noir, and a Pinot Noir/Malbec rosé at the entry level.
