Magari - Ca'Marcanda by Gaja

MAGARI

(mah-GAH-ree)

Magari is an Italian expression having different meanings “If only it was true...!”, “Maybe...”. It carries a sort of irony which leads people to smile, without showing off the great commitment and determination associated to the Ca’Marcanda project. Winery 

CA’ MARCANDA, Castagneto Carducci, Upper Maremma, Tuscany.

Denomination 

Bolgheri D.O.P.

Varieties

Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot.
[Blend until the 2014 vintage: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc].

Vineyards

In Bolgheri both on dark soil rich in slime and clay, and white soil full of limestone, clay and stones.

Winemaking methods

The three varieties ferment and macerate separately for around 15 days. After 12 months of ageing in oak, they are blended and then age for some months in the bottle before being released.

Characteristics

Bouquet recalling red fruits, aromatic herbs typical of the Mediterranean scrub as well as marine notes. Full and smooth mouthfeel, with a pleasant acidic end.

First vintage produced

2000
