Winemaker Notes

Incredible Malbec!

Fine core of raspberry and blackberry, with ample structure as well. Good mineral, toast, briar and meat hints underneath. Shows more muscle but stays nicely balanced through the finish. Drink now through 2007.
-Wine Spectator

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, weather conditions in the region are characterized by a wide thermal amplitude between daytime highs and nighttime 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 transate into a slow, gradual maturation process, permitting and extended hang time and esuring proper acid balance

Full bodied and rich with juicy blackberry and cassis fruit. Hints of cocoa and spice linger over the firm yet silky tannins. Finishes ripe and long.

Rutini Winery Video

From the start, Felipe Rutini was guided by the motto “labor and perseverance”. This attitude shaped the development of his wines, which became synonymous with superlative quality. In 1925 the winery began to plant vines in the Uco Valley. From those first pioneering vines, the region continued to expand its plantings and become one of the primary wine-producing areas in Mendoza. 

In the 1990s, the original Bodega La Rural facilities in Coquimbito were completely renovated, incorporating cutting-edge technology into the nineteenth-century structure. Today that property houses the Bodega La Rural Wine Museum, where visitors can learn about Felipe Rutini’s first forays into wine production and witness the evolution of traditional techniques and machinery. In keeping with its founder’s drive for excellence, in 2008 construction began on a new Rutini Wines facility in Tupungato, within the Uco Valley. This is where Rutini’s top level wines, such as, Apartado, Colección Rutini, Encuentro, and Trumpeter are currently produced. 

The Uco Valley vineyards comprise more than 400 hectares at an altitude of between 1,050 and 1,200 meters above sea level. An additional 120 hectares of fields that are currently being planted with vines will expand the winery’s possibilities for producing unique wines that are carefully tended to and nurtured from the very beginning.
