Gaja Ca'Marcanda Magari 2011




Magari means if only it were true!, an expression used often in Italian to express desire, hope, and a vision of a bright future. Ca'Marcanda's unique combination of terre brune (dark soils: loam and clay) and terre bianche (white soils: stones and pebbles) is reflected in Magari.

VinousMocha, raspberry jam, flowers and sweet herbs flesh out in the 2011 Magari. An open, resonant wine, the 2011 impresses for its texture, length and balance, all things that have improved since this wine was first produced in 2001. Today, the French oak is a little pronounced, so I would wait at least another year before drinking the 2011. This is an impeccably polished wine for a year that had its share of challenges. The 2011 is 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc.
