Winemaker Notes

Vineyards The grapes are sourced from the Tupungato region of Mendoza, high in the Andes Mountains, set at an elevation between 3,000 and 5,000 feet above sea level. With unique microclimate conditions, Tupungato offers the opportunity to produce fruit with exceptional concentration and structure. Due to its high altitude location, the weather conditions in the region are characterized by a wide thermal amplitude between daytime highs and nightime lows. The bright sunny days allow for maximum radiation and photosynthesis, resulting in the development of a complex matrix of flavors and aromas. The cool, clear nights traslate into a slow, gradual maturation process, permitting and extended hang time and ensuring proper acid balance

Tasting Notes Medium-bodied with rich minerally fruit, this Chardonnay is elegant and refined. The Citrus and peach fruit balance nicely with the toasty oak. The finish is at once creamy and fresh.

Felipe Rutini, Argentina
Image of winery
Don Felipe Rutini, an Italian immigrant from the winemaking region of Le Marche, founded bodegas La Rural in 1885. Don Felipe, who came to Argentina with a degree in agriculture from the Real Scuola de Ascoli Pisceno, had his eye on quality from the start. One of the first varietals he planted was Cabernet Sauvignon, in the Maipu vineyard, where La Rural grows Cabernet Sauvignon for Trumpeter today.

Don Felipe sent his six children to study in Italy. The new generation brought back to Argentina the European concept of ‘terroir’. They set out to find the best sites for vine cultivation in Mendoza. In 1925, the Rutinis planted their first vines in Tupungato. But it wasn't until the 80’s and 90’s that the Tupungato Valley would become the "Napa Valley" of Mendoza, with every Argentine and foreign winery investing in Argentina trying to buy land there for vineyards.

For decades, the wines of La Rural have been harbingers of quality in Argentina. Six years ago, Nicolás Catena, the pioneering owner of Bodegas Esmeralda, became a partner at La Rural with Don Rodolfo Reina Rutini, the grandson of Don Felipe Rutini. The winery has undergone substantial modernization and the vineyards have benefited from Catena's outstanding vineyard management team. The goal, as with every other Nicolás Catena project: to produce world-class wines that can stand with the best of the world.
