La Rural combines a unique sense of tradition with a contemporary, modern vision. The winery's commitment to quality is over a century old, dating back to 1885. An Italian immigrant, Don Felipe brought old world winemaking and vineyard expertise aquired in Italy to the New World. Today the wines of Rutini follow the best in European tradition, while incorporating the latest technology. Four generations of the Rutini family have run the winery over the last century, and continue to ensure that the is one of extraordinary character.
The 2002 Felipe Rutini Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows fruity aromas, vanilla and chocolate that lead into spicy flavours, coffee and well – balanced fruit tannins. Hints of vanilla, cocoa and sweet oak appear on the smooth finish.
