BenMarco Cabernet Franc
Los Chacayes, Uco Valley, Mendoza
Red color and purple hues. It displays aromas of spices and dry grass with a slight earthy character, such as chalk. It also has a subtle vegetable trace in the mid-palate, complemented by fine, precise tannins. It is a wine of great aging potential, and it is better to let it air for a while in the glass before drinking.
Game meat, baby goat, venison, duck and dishes with earthy, rustic flavors such as portobello, black olives and grilled red peppers.
