"Bodega Cicchitti was founded in 1982 in Guymallen, Mendoza, by Jose Antonio Cicchitti. Cicchitti uses grapes from its Estate only (240 acres). Yields are kept low."
"The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked into small cases of 30 pounds. Fermentation takes place in small concrete tanks. Only native yeasts are used."
"Jose Antonio manages to keep a surprising low profile in spite of the high quality of his wines." - Importer
