Rutini Wines of Argentina

The Rutini family winemaking tradition began in the early 19th century in Le Marche, Italy, when Francisco Rutini started making wines for the inhabitants of his native town, Ascoli Piceno. Thereafter, his only son Felipe Rutini immigrated to the Americas to extend the winemaking tradition. It was in Coquimbito, Maipú, in the province of Mendoza Argentina that he planted his first vines, further starting the Rutini Wines legacy. Since its foundation in 1885, Rutini Wines has been recognized for its extraordinary quality and character of its wines.  As Don Felipe Rutini built the winery under the slogan ¨Labor and Perseverance¨, he created a lasting legacy for top quality wines in Argentina. – via

Rutini Sauvignon Blanc 2014 -  This earthy wine is well balanced with crisp acidity; showing off pink grapefruit, herbs and freshly cut grass. This Sauvignon Blanc is rich and intense with fruit, and vanilla. A jewel of a white wine. SRP $25.

Rutini Cabernet Sauvignon  2012 – 100% Cabernet vibrant and rich with notes of vanilla, chocolate spice and coffee. Balanced with a long finish. Lovely rich red wine. SRP $35

Rutini Malbec 2012 – A refined red wine with a concentrated nose of wild berries, tobacco and vanilla. The palate is full, with rich black fruit flavors and a long, lingering finish with a touch of black pepper spice. A truly wonderful wine for a special weekend dinner. SRP $35

Rutini Apoartado Gran Malbec 2010 - “Apartado” coming from the Spanish verb “apartar”, which means “that is set apart” or “set aside” from the rest. The composition of the wines varies each year depending on the best barrels of the harvest. The Apartado range represents the true richness of the vineyards in the Uco Valley. An intense Malbec, on the nose, this wine is complex, and elegant, with  floral aromas and fruit notes. The mouth feel is long and complex with a smooth concentration possessing a fruity-potent character with hints of licorice and notes of cocoa. An excellent splurge wine. SRP $100

    Finally! I lived in Argentina. And Rutini was my absolute favorite – especially the Malbec and Cabernet-Malbec blends.
