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. Following his innovative spirit, in 1925 the winery began to plant vines in the Uco Valley. From those first pioneering vines, the region has 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. It is there that our top level wines, such as Felipe Rutini, Apartado, Antología, Single Vineyard , Colección Rutini, Encuentro, and Trumpeter wines are currently produced. Our 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.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the world’s foremost red wine-grape variety. Though widely cultivated throughout the world, it is most commonly associated with the red wines of Bordeaux, his home, where it is the key red variety in the Left Bank regions of the Médoc and Pessac-Léognan.
In the vineyard, the grapes are small, thick-skinned and decidedly blue-coloured, with a high pip-to-pulp ratio. Its thick skin results in wines of profoundly deep color, and the pips add a high level of tannin.
It ripens late, which is advantageous in warmer climates like Bordeaux, France and California. In colder growing environments, Cabernet Sauvignon can easily fail to ripen properly.
They wines are tannic in youth, especially when aged in oak, and often require a few years to soften before they become enjoyable to drink. Typical flavours may include black fruits like blackcurrant or blackberry, as well as fragrant cigar box, tobacco and coffee.
Elsewhere, Cabernet Sauvignon is cultivated to a greater or lesser extent in virtually all wine-growing regions. High-quality wines are produced in Bolgheri, Italy and Australia, notably Margaret River and Coonawarra. There are considerable plantings and good quality in Chile, Argentina and South Africa.
