Gaja may be most famous for producing world-class Barolo and Barbaresco. But...
Gaja's Ca'Marcanda estate in Bolgheri is turning heads in the Super Tuscan landscape.
Paying homage to international Bordeaux varietals, the 2018 Magari Ca'Marcanda is "one of the classiest wines I can remember tasting from Ca’ Marcanda." Vinous
"This beauty is another Bordeaux look-alike with incredible class." Jeb Dunnuck
"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... It is not an obvious wine, but it sure is enticing." Vinous
What We Love About This Wine
The loamy, clay-rich soils of the property give this wine its signature texture and minerality. The 2018 Magari is one of the finest examples of a Super Tuscan from this outstanding vintage. It is a delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
How should you enjoy this Bordeaux doppelganger? With grilled or roasted tenderloin. Season as desired with thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Magari possesses striking notes of mocha, tar, herbs, smoke, earth, and sweet French oak, which come alive with grilled and roasted meat.
Whether you are familiar with Gaja's Magari or not, make sure you get to enjoy this particularly exceptional 2018 Gaja Magari.
