WINE ADVOCATE 

92 / 100

"The 2014 Bolgheri Rosso Magari opens to a dark garnet color and pretty ruby highlights. I really love the crispness, acidity and linearity of this vintage that stands so far away from the more opulent and robust ... Read More »

THE REVIEW

We only get one shot at this wine each year for a very short period. So little is made, even less released. Inventory of Gaja's Magari Super Tuscan goes as quickly as it arrives.
    If you are Gaja fan, you already know about the Magari mystic and its scarcity. If you are Super Tuscan fan, you shouldn't hold back on this limited release.
    Wine Spectator has anointed Gaja wines "the finest Italian wines ever made." True to form, the newly released 2014 Gaja Magari is a fantastic Super Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
    Made famous for his Piedmont Barbarescos, Angelo Gaja has again raised the bar for Tuscan winemakers.
    I happen to enjoy this wine with tenderloin seasoned with thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. That's because the Gaja Magari possesses striking notes of graphite, tar, herbs, mocha, smoke, black cherries, earth and sweet French oak, which come alive with red meat. Roasty aromas of coffee and beautifully integrated barrel spice and fruit will fill your glass. The wine is powerful, expansive and breathtakingly balanced. It is a rich, well-rounded wine with an elegant, classically Tuscan silky finish.
    Whether familiar with Magari or not, please make sure you are one of the few that gets to enjoy it this year.Read More »
