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

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.
