The son of the famous Argentinian oenologist Jorge Riccitelli, Matias Riccitelli founded the eponymous estate in 2009. Located in the province of Mendoza, this estate reigns over a 20-hectare vineyard that spreads over three unique terroirs in the foothills of the Andes Mountains.
Matias Riccitelli passionately produces Argentinian wines whose refinement and aromatic richness beam beyond the country’s borders.
