"The 2008 Blend Edicion Limitada is composed of 40% Pinot Noir, 38% Sangiovese, and 22% Merlot, a unique concoction for Mendoza. It spent 10 months in French and American oak before bottling without fining and filtration. Enticing notes of cherry blossom, cinnamon, vanilla, clove, and black raspberry titillate the nose, pointing toward a medium-bodied, savory, spicy, incipiently complex wine with excellent balance and length. It is likely to evolve for 2-3 years but can be approached now."

"Bodega Cicchitti was founded in 1882 and uses only estate-grown fruit from its 240 acres in its wines. The wines are native yeast fermented and bottled without fining or filtration." (12/11)

Cicchitti (Mendoza):
"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."
