BenMarco wines are crafted with minimal intervention, aiming to capture the true essence of the unique terroirs where the grapes for BenMarco thrive. “I try to avoid adding my influence to BenMarco wines,” Edy Del Popolo, winemaker, says. “What I really like to see is what the vines can do, without any kind of winemaking influence.”

 Hand-selected grapes. Destemming and soft crushing. Either one delestage or one push-down per day, combined with pump-overs. Cold maceration for four days. Fermentation at 30°C (86°F) maximum with wild yeasts. 14 months in French oak barrels (70% new, 30% second-use).

 

"A nuanced but deep nose, showing crushed stones, fresh and glossy blackberries and blueberries, then flowers, asphalt, cocoa powder and chalk. Broad, exuberant and concentrated, but not at all heavy. This is juicy and so polished and dense, with silky, chalky tannins to coat the blueberry fruit. Fleshy, tight and seamless. Long and so seductive now. 85% malbec and 15% cabernet franc. Vegan."
-James Suckling, 96 Points

"Gualtallary is recognized for its calcareous alluvial soils. As a result, BenMarco Expresivo is a lineal, fresh wine, with aromas of blackberries, pepper tree and violets. It stands out for its mineral notes, balanced natural acidity and firm tannins. It has a great aging potential."
-Winemaker Notes

Blend: 85% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Franc
