BenMarco Expresivo

BenMarco wines go higher in elevation and work in extreme site never explored before.
Edgardo del Popolo, viticulturist and wine-maker for BenMarco, expresses through these wines the characteristics of the best soils and grapes of Mendoza.
Expresivo is harvested from Gualtallary Terroir, which translates in mineral notes, firm fine grained tannins and great length.
The result is a vertical wine with ultra-fine grained tannins, long after taste and great ageing potential.

Susana Balbo Brioso

Brioso is Susana Balbo’s signature Bordeaux blend consisting of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Malbec, 22% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, all blended then aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels. The grapes come from Finca Dominio, located almost 1000 meters above sea level in the prime area of ​​Agrelo (in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza).
Susana Balbo is regarded as Argentina’s finest female winemaker, and this Brioso is a great wine which showcase her talents. It’s consistently good quality year on year with recent vintages aiming to be more European in style, less fruit driven and more traditional Bordeaux.

In Susana’s own words: “Brioso means “the spirit of passion for challenges”, and expresses my unique passion to create this wine”.

Susana Balbo Crios Torrontés

From the very beginning, Susana Balbo has been dominating the art of breaking the rules. She was a pioneer in Torrontés wines, transforming this traditional grape of Argentina into an emblematic one. Her first harvest broke the rules by creating a premium style of Torrontés distinguished by its elegant notes of white flowers, pear and ripe peach.
In a few words: dry, fresh and aromatic.

Susana Balbo La Delfina Paraje Altamira Malbec

Named after her mother, Finca La Delfina is Susana’s favorite vineyard in Altamira. In 2013, the quality of a small plot caught her attention, so she decided to set it apart and vinify the grapes separately. Deep and dark, this limited edition Malbec was fermented in concrete eggs in order to preserve the character of the fruit. It displays intense blackberry and liquorice flavours framed by a touch of oak from barrel maturation.

Susana Balbo Signature Malbec

Many Malbec associate with powerful, robust and sweet-fruited red wines, but Susana Balbo chooses instead to emphasize the elegant fruity and minerality of the grape variety. Made with purchased grapes from Altamira, this impressive, limestone-influenced Malbec contains 8% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage. It’s a scented, well balanced expression of the grape with bright acidity, crunchy blackberry fruit, well integrated oak and filigree tannins. More evidence of the change of style here.
