    • "Magari" Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2018

      “Magari” Rosso Bolgheri DOC 2018

      Magari is a dark, rich and luscious wine that faithfully reflects the signature of Gaja in Bolgheri. The wine drinks beautifully and smoothly, caressing all the senses with sensual silkiness. The 2018 vintage delivers plump and extra supple fruit that further highlights the Ca' Marcanda style. Dark berries and spice mingle with seamless intensity. The wine offers firm grip and long-lasting power on the finish. There is nothing here not to love. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of currants, orange peel and dried herbs, such as sage, follow through to a medium to full body with pretty fruit and a juicy, savory finish that shows walnut and fresh terracotta." James Suckling

      "A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the 2018 Bolgheri Rosso Magari shows grace and a slightly lighter style that works very nicely. With the recent releases from Bolgheri, many from the hot and concentrated 2017 vintage, this 2018 alternative comes as an elegant surprise. You can appreciate the purity of the fruit, with dark cherry and plum, and the acidity that pops up on the finish. This is almost a full-bodied red, but not quite. It holds back just a hair, and that more careful approach goes a long way to the pleasure factor." Robert Parker

      "The 2018 Magari is quite deceptive in its first impression. Translucent and medium in body, Magari opens to reveal lovely brightness and persistence that gives the wine shape. Sweet dark berry fruit, spice, tobacco, cedar and licorice are nicely woven throughout. Quite simply, the 2018 Magari is one of the classiest wines I can remember tasting from Ca’ Marcanda. It is not an obvious wine, but it sure is enticing." Vinous

      “Camarcanda” Bolgheri DOC 2013

      Camarcanda is a rich Bolgheri Rosso with a dark bouquet of black fruits, espresso, chocolate, liquorice and tar. On the palate it is extremely full-bodied, with excellent depth, dense structure and firm body. Opulent and long, this wine already today shows a wide range of its personality. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2013 Bolgheri Rosso Camarcanda shows the pedigree of the vintage and the importance this top shelf wine deserves. This is an exceptional blend of Merlot with Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc that is challenging to taste next to the 2014 Magari, which is so radically different. Camarcanda reveals Gaja's signature touch with full and generous fruit layers that are backed by spice, leather, tobacco and lovely succulence. The wine is integrated and smooth with long-lasting favors and beautiful tannin management. Despite its heft, the wine is elegant and silky through and through." Robert Parker

      "Very Bordeaux-like, this red offers plum, cherry, coffee, green olive and spice aromas and flavors. Taut and dense, with a long, fresh finish that exudes cedar, sandalwood and green olive notes." Wine Spectator

      Camarcanda is a rich Bolgheri Rosso Superiore with dark bouquet of black fruits, espresso, chocolate, liquorice and tar. On the palate it is extremely full-bodied, with excellent depth, dense structure and firm body. Opulent and long, this wine already shows a wide range of its personality. SUPERIORE.DE

      " Opened with delicate cassis and herbal aromas; powerful yet elegant texture with stocky tannins, invigorating acidity, lots of grinding, juice and length, pleases with its fine peppery fruit finale. Gajas Bolgheri interpretation combines cut and fullness". Vinum

      "Bright, intense ruby red with a violet tint. Finely drawn nose with notes of red and black currant, fresh, then dark cherry and spices. Round and smooth on the palate, shows a lot of present fruit, opens with fine-meshed tannin, juicy and long, very precise." Falstaff

      "Austere in aroma, this red reveals intense flavors of cherry, raspberry, rose and mineral. Firmly structured, yet stays on course with a laser of fruit. Vanilla and toast notes chime in on the finish. Fine balance, length and complexity." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Camarcanda is pretty, open-knit and gracious in its bouquet, although there is a good bit of Cabernet tannin underpinning the dark fruit. Hints of chocolate, mint, sage, tobacco, licorice and blackberry develop in the glass. The 2016 needs a few years to soften, but it is undeniably attractive and inviting. It's hard to say if it is the vintage, or if the style here has moved towards a bit more freshness as it has at Gaja in Piedmont, but the 2016 Camarcanda does seem to have an extra kick of vibrancy over some previous editions. I can't wait to taste it with some bottle age." Vinous

      "Fragrant florals punctuate the nose, ranging from lavender to hyacinth, and there are hints of heather and thyme, too. Citrusy undertones abound. There’s a profundity to the center palate, which is decked out in sheets of dark fruit-flavored, muscular tannins that retain a telltale elegance, as they envelop the peripheries of the mouth. Long and mineral, this is a delightful wine now and will continue to open up as the years go by." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Camarcanda is infinitely smooth and finely textured down to the very last pixel in what is a high-resolution panoramic photograph. The core of the wine is packed tight with an explosion of flavor and concentration with so much dark fruit, spice, tobacco and sweet tobacco that unfurls from deep inside. This wine will have a long and, I am quite sure, very happy aging future ahead. It shows utmost precision and balance, with long persistence and a beautifully polished texture." Robert Parker

      Magari is vinified from 50 percent Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc in equal parts. It presents itself fresh and juicy, with strong vegetal accents and great depth. Simply delicious! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Gaja started to make wine in Bolgheri in 2000. Magari changed in blend in 2014, replacing the difficult Merlot in this warm climate with Petit Verdot which ripens better here than in Bordeaux. The 2016 is youthful in colour, full of leafy Cabernet Franc notes. It has firm, extracted tannins and is not without great tension on the palate. It needs time to develop in finesse and complexity, having now the exuberance of youth." Decanter

      "The 2016 Magari is a dark, powerful wine. In most vintages, Magari is a wine of Tuscan charm, but powerful tannins give the 2016 a somewhat compact feel. There is plenty of depth to the black fruit, mocha, new leather and spice flavors, but the 2016 is clearly very young. There is not much Bolgheri charm in the early going. The 2016 is going to need at least a few years in bottle to come together." VINOUS

      "A very fresh nose with tons of dark fruit, such as brambleberries, blueberries and dark cherries, as well as vanilla, dried herbs and eucalyptus. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a tight finish." James Suckling

      "Black currant and black cherry fruit mingles with mint, olive, graphite and tobacco notes in this red. Elegant, with ample density and bright acidity, ending in a firm, fruit-, mineral- and herb-tinged aftertaste. Well-proportioned and classy." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Magari produces an expressive and opulent red wine, with great acidity and definition. The wine is firm and tightly wound, with secondary complexity that expresses itself in terms of tar, leather and spice. The tannins are supple and soft." Robert Parker

      "The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Camarcanda is infinitely smooth and finely textured down to the very last pixel in what is a high-resolution panoramic photograph. The core of the wine is packed tight with an explosion of flavor and concentration with so much dark fruit, spice, tobacco and sweet tobacco that unfurls from deep inside. This wine will have a long and, I am quite sure, very happy aging future ahead. It shows utmost precision and balance, with long persistence and a beautifully polished texture." Robert Parker

      “Camarcanda” Bolgheri DOC 2018 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Camarcanda is a rich Bolgheri Rosso Superiore with a dark bouquet of black fruits, espresso, chocolate, liquorice and tar. On the palate, it is decidedly full-bodied, with excellent depth, dense structure and firm body. Opulent and long, this wine already shows a wide range of its personality. SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakersCa' Marcanda | Angelo GajaTuscany | Bolgheri
    Ca' Marcanda | Angelo Gaja

    Angelo Gaja, the most famous inhabitant of the village of Barbaresco, has long been known throughout the world for his careful and uncompromising preparation of Italian wines of the highest quality and exclusivity. Also in his branch Ca' Marcanda in the Bolgheri area, the prominent winemaker produces elegant wines in his unmistakable style, which combine with the typical local characteristics of the terroir. The wines deliver a polished and modern image of the still quite young Tuscan cultivation zone. The beautiful vineyard in Castagneto Carducci produces wonderful Bordeaux blends from the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and a little Syrah. The very high-quality grapes thrive on a vineyard area of about 100 hectares. A large part of the vineyards are arranged in the form of a belt around the winery, in which about 450,000 bottles are closed with corks every year.

    The futuristic cellar of Ca' Marcanda is extremely modern and generously designed. It almost completely disappears beneath the surface. The best possible processing of the grapes is guaranteed in the rooms. Gaja had the winery built into a mountain in such a way that it merges completely with the landscape from three sides. In front of it are cypresses, which the owner of the estate has planted in small groups of five trees near all his vineyards. Why he is doing this, he himself does not know exactly. Gaja says, however: "The cypresses will still be there when I'm gone." The full-bodied and fruity Camarcanda Bolgheri, the most expensive product in the range, has the status of a showpiece. The noble drop is prepared from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a little Cabernet Franc.

    Until Angelo Gaja finally the vineyard hills of the vineyard Ca' Marcanda, he needed some nerve and patience. The negotiations with the former owner of the parcels, which were still very sparsely planted at that time, took a very long time. The names of some wines refer to these time-consuming conversations. Thus the Promis - an IGT wine pressed from Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese - is derived from the Italian word promessa. The name is intended to sum up the promise of quality and the reward for the care and excellence of creative work. Magari - this IGT consists half of Merlot and equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc - means as much as perhaps translated from Italian. From this wine name the following question can be deduced with a little imagination: "Maybe he'll sell me the parcels, maybe he won't.". (superiore.de)

    "Stylistically, the wines are modern, although according to the still young tradition of Bolgheri. Full fruit, dense, precise use of wood for wines that fully meet expectations."Gambero Rosso
