“If you like Tignanello, you'll love this Bolgheri beauty!”

One Shot Is All We Get For This Bolgheri Beauty!

By David Gettenberg

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.

If you like Tignanello, Guado al Tasso, Sassicaia, and Ornellaia, you must try the 2019 Gaja Ca'Marcanda Magari.  

Paying homage to international Bordeaux varietals, the 2019 Gaja Magari is a wonderfully balanced Bordeaux blend and classic Super Tuscan.

"Magari offers a surprisingly subtle side to the three very powerful grapes that make up the blend. These are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The bouquet is generous and full, with an intricate embroidery of lavender flower, garden herb, black fruit, spice and tobacco. You might even detect a hint of black olive. Magari is structured and solid but never heavy, and it offers a good sense of fresh acidity that makes for a lively and bright finish." Wine Advocate

What We Love About This Gaja's Magari

A gorgeous Super Tuscan, the loamy, clay-rich soils of the property give this wine its signature texture and minerality.  

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 exceptional Super Tuscan.

Enjoy!

“Garden herb, black fruit, spice and tobacco.”

"The Ca' Marcanda 2019 Bolgheri Rosso Magari offers a surprisingly subtle side to the three very powerful grapes that make up the blend. These are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The bouquet is generous and full, with an intricate embroidery of lavender flower, garden herb, black fruit, spice and tobacco. You might even detect a hint of black olive. Magari is structured and solid but never heavy, and it offers a good sense of fresh acidity that makes for a lively and bright finish. That more acidic vein is neatly folded into ample fruity sweetness and flavor."
