The BenMarco Malbec by Susana Balbo from the Argentine wine region Uco Valley in Mendoza is an excellent, grape varietal and seductive red wine.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a rich purple with ruby red highlights. The fruity-floral bouquet is dominated by black fruits - especially currant, blackberry and black cherries - and floral notes of violet. The palate of this Argentinian red wine is pampered by a balanced acidity and firm tannin structure. The aroma of the nose is also reflected and accompanies in the long-lasting reverberation.
Vinification of Susana Balbo BenMarco Malbec
The grapes are carefully harvested in the Uco Valley and immediately brought to the wine cellar of Susana Balbo. There, the harvested material is fermented at a controlled temperature in the stainless steel tank and remains on the shells for 30 days. Finally, this red wine rounds off harmoniously for 12 months in French oak barriques.
