Winemaker’s Notes

Gualtallary is well-known for its chalky alluvial soils which allow adequate water drainage. The result in BenMarco Expresivo, is a wine with deep, bright ruby color. It has chalk, earthy, floral, peppercorn tree fruits notes. It is a vertical wine with ultra-fine grained tannins, long after taste and great aging potential.

Pair with grilled meats, veal, medium-strong cheeses and spicy sauces.

Blend: 75% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Franc

Reviews

96 ptsJames Suckling

This really builds on the nose with notes of pure blackcurrants, iodine, ink, graphite, crushed stones, flint, morello-cherry essence and licorice. The fresh purity of the fruit that permeates the entire palate is what makes this wine. The tannins are so compact and dialed-in, framing tons of violet and lavender flavors and carrying them long on the finish. 75% malbec and 25% cabernet franc. Drink in 2022.
