Gaja Ca’Marcanda Magari 2018 HALF Bottle (37.5cl)


Red, Tuscany, Italy

In stock


This is the most immediately satisfying and fruity of the Gaja wines, this is a typical wine from the Bolgheri area of Tuscany, a blend of French varieties Cabernet Franc (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), and Petit Verdot (10%).

TASTING NOTE: An attractive deep red/purple colour. On the nose: notes of blackcurrants, pepper, and eucalyptus, with plenty more black and red fruits coming through, that are expected of Bordeaux grapes. On the palate: just as expressive with blackberries and spice, and the firm tannins of Cabernet plus mouth-filling berry flavour that carries into a long, elegant finish. 14% alcohol by volume.

FOOD PAIRING, STORING AND SERVICE: With plenty of versatility, it will pair alongside many great dishes, like a classic grilled steak, or with easy fare such as pizza or Italian sausage, many tomato-based pasta dishes as well. This is a wine that is ready to drink now, or easily keep until 2025+.

ABOUT: They are still based in Barbaresco but have also purchased land in prime Tuscan vineyard areas: Ca’ Marcanda (126 hectares) in Bolgheri. Founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 the estate is now run by the 4th and 5th generation, Angelo Gaja and children Gaia and Giovanni. Based in Barbaresco but with land in prime Tuscan vineyard areas, Angelo Gaja was an early promoter of single-vineyard wines, now known as ‘Crus’, following the Burgundy mould, making small quantities of exceptional quality wines with utmost care. Many would consider them, in the words of the Wine Spectator, ‘perhaps the finest Italian wines ever made’.
