Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Angelo Gaja’s venture - Ca'Marcanda. Blend of 60% Cab Franc, 30% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, barrel aged for 12 mos. A big, very rich Gaja style wine. Deep red with dark berry fruits and earthy leathery spice notes. On the palate blackberry and black cherry flavors, smooth with integrated herb spice, mint and tobacco, lively acidity. Fine tannins, great balance, long finish ending with mineral spice character. Very nice. Will age well!

Gaja Ca’Marcanda Magari 2017: Smooth. Balanced. Inviting. Medium tannins. Medium acidity. Full flavors. Blackberry. Tobacco. Spice. Earth. Overall, a rich (& lovely) Super Tuscan wine consisting of 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Petit Verdot. Drinking fantastic right now but if given the chance, I would hold. Great day to all! Cheers🍷

Boysenberry, earth, elegant tannins, a little baking spice. More refined bolgheri. Gaja tasting

Dry, dark fruits, robust. Not the best Gaja we’ve had. But a decent drinker with steak on a Tuesday night.
