A Malbec… that kicks ass!

SEND PAGE TO FRIEND

Why do we love it?

Do you want to try a Malbec… that kicks ass, like Bruce did? Perfect, because we managed to find a few bottles of Matias Riccitelli's Kung Fu Malbec, a natural Malbec from an altitude of 1350 meters. Warning: if you eat your filet well done and only like floral and marmalade reds this wine is not for you. Keep reading if you're devouring your T bone rare or fancy some mutton chops and love rough reds with personality!

So, hear how things are. Matias Riccitelli was born and raised in Cafayate, surrounded by wine. It couldn't be otherwise since his father is the legend of Argentinian wine, Jorge Riccitelli. He worked close to him but traveled the world to satisfy his curiosity and discover new roads and paths. Returning to Argentina he built his own winery and there he makes very special wines, perfectly harmonious with the land and the place and with an unmistakable style. His new work is called Kung Fu Malbec and it is a natural wine, without sulfites and other interventions. The grapes come from the organically cultivated vineyard at the northern end of the Uco Valley, located at an altitude of 1350 meters. The grapes are picked by hand and the wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in concrete "eggs" (oval-shaped tanks). The result has dense black fruit, a botanical dimension and… animal instincts.

Bottles are scarce, less than 30, just letting you know!

Tastes Like

Matias Riccitelli's Kung Fu Malbec has deep purple color and a slowly unfolding nose. At the beginning, notes of meat and leather prevail but after a while blueberries, plums, blackberries, mint, lavender and graphite make their appearance.

In the mouth it is dense and rich, with pronounced acidity and moderate tannins. Ripe black fruits mingle with notes of tea, black pepper, cocoa, lavender and bell pepper.

MALBEC KUNG FU 2021 - MATIAS RICCITELLI

PAIR IT

Pair it with pork ribs with bbq sauce, Peking duck, burger with caramelized onions and cheddar

Roasted duck

1 duck, about 3 kg
1 kg of potatoes, peeled, cut into large pieces 
4 onions, chopped
50g of duck fat
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped sage
2 lemon zest

Preheat the oven to 220 ° C.

Season the duck with salt and pepper in the cavity.

Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft, then drain them well and mush them. Fry the onions in duck fat until they get a golden brown colour. Add the garlic to the potato puree and mix with sage, lemon zest and pepper. Put the mixture in the duck's cavity. Put the duck on a spacious baking tray in the middle of the oven. Bake for 30 minutes in 220 ° C.
Then, lower the temperature to 180 C or 160 C and roast the dusk for 2 ½ hours.
When the duck is cooked, remove it from the oven and leave it to rest for 15 minutes.
We recommend serving it with red cabbage and baked potatoes.
