2018 Uco Malbec
Matias Riccitelli is a young, adventurous maker shaking things up in Mendoza. When many other Malbecs are over-oaked, over-ripe, and over-handled, Matias leans to a refreshing and honest expression of the grape. HEY MALBEC! is his young, designed-to-be-drunk red. Juicy black fruits dance with violets and a dusting of black pepper, with soft ripe tannins leading to an opulent finale. This wine begs you to finish the bottle.
