Winemaker's Notes

The grapes are sourced from the Tupungato region of Mendoza, high in the Andes Mountains, at an elevation of about 3,500 feet above sea-level. With its unique microclimate, Tupungato produces fruit with exceptional fruit and structure. The sunny climate in the Tupungato Valley combined with perfect altitude and significant day to night temperature variation translates into a slow, gradual maturation with the development of rich concentrated fruit flavors, complex aromas, sweet tannins and intense violet color. The cool nights allow for an extended hang-time on the vines ensuring a good balance of acidity.

Felipe Rutini Cabernet Sauvignon has fruity aromas with hints of vanilla and chocolate that develop into spice and coffee flavors. It is fruity with well-balanced tannins, and hints of cocoa and sweet oak on the smooth finish.
