The Torrontes The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From The Apple Tree is made of grapes hand-picked from Matias Riccitelli’s vineyard in the upcoming subregion of Gualtallary in Uco Valley. At the winery, the grapes are hand sorted before vinification.
The grapes were macerated for eight hours before being fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 15°C.
Matias Riccitelli is the son of renowned winemaker Jorge Riccitelli. Having worked at some of the most prestigious wineries in Argentina and several vintages around the world, Matias used his experience, knowledge and passion and set up his own winery in 2009. His vineyards cover 50 hectares located in three selected sites within the premium growing region of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. This is a young and dynamic project in which Matias is seeking to express the full potential of Argentine terroir.
