In 1885, Felipe Rutini founded the winery Bodega La Rural in Coquimbito, Maipu, which marked Rutini Wines entrance into the world of wine. From the beginning, Felipe Rutini was guided by the motto ‘’Labor and Perseverance’’. This attitude shaped the development of this 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 primary wine-producing areas in Mendoza. Felipe Rutini is the ultra-premium wine of the winery, chosen among the 50 Top Wines of South America and is the best rated among the Argentine wines of traditional wineries. Its production began in 1985, as a tribute to Don Felipe Rutini and the centenary of the work of the winery he founded. It was the first Argentine wine to have a proper name on the label. Felipe Rutini is the quintessence of the highest quality that Rutini Wines can offer in the creation of extraordinary wines. A red dry wine, blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. The aromatic bouquet consists of red fruit and hints of vegetables. On the mouth we detect intense and balanced tannins accompanied with acidity and flavors of red fruits, vegetables like pepper. You could pair it with red meat, pasta with red sauces of feathered game.
