Rutini is a winery in the Maipu Valley in Mendoza, Argentina. It was founded in the late 19th century by Italian winemaker Felipe Rutini, originally called La Rural, with the motto Labor et Perseverantia (“Labor and Perseverence.”) Eventually the winery expanded into Los Corralitos and Medrano. Upon his passing in 1915, his descendants continued the operation, producing fine Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Chenin Blanc. In 1925, Rutini was the first winery to plant in the as yet unchartered Topungato region, recognizing its excellent viticultural possibilities for its climate and elevation. In 1994, Rutini was acquired by Argentinian winemaking icons Nicolas Catena and Jose Benegas Lynch, who have elevated the winery to become one of the region’s top quality producers. Principal winemaker is Mariano Di Paola, who oversees production at the state of the art facilities.

Labels like Susana Balbo, Alamos and Altos Las Hormigas are said to be good for a reasonable price tag.Most of the wine i have at the moment is from Spain, Australia and South Africa, (Mostly Reds, Shiraz & Cabs) maybe i should give Malbec a go!Any Argentinian exp...

  • Rutini Red Blend la Consulta Cabernet Malbec 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This stained my lips and teeth so purple that when I was giving my daughter a bath she asked me why lips were brown. Besides that wonderful anecdote, there isn't much to say here. Hard to tell it apart from all of the other Mendoza malbecs, which is not a bad thing. Mendoza malbecs are delicioso. Read More

  • Rutini Wines "Trumpeter" Malbec Mendoza Argentina 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Initial sourness in the aroma opens up to bring in tannin and other scents. Fairly tangy for the variety, but with some light sweetness and woody complexity. Good. Read More

  • Valentin Bianchi Malbec V 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Bought this wine at the suggestion of airport duty free person in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Big mistake, I should not buy wine that the salesperson pushes hard, it probably means that they get better commission if they sell it.Wine was terrible. Strong acidic tobacco flavor, strong after taste. Didn't taste good alone or with food. $27 US. ... Read More

    There I was in the Parilla Pena, my favorite grill in BA, with three friends, when I discovered Septimo Dia. Parilla Pena (pronounced Pen-ya) is a legendary lunch favorite for Portenos who are lawyers, judges and businessmen, cause the courts are close by. It is special, amazing and not a tourist trap. Every November and December I go and rent a... Read More
