Gaja Ca'Marcanda Magari 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
Magari means if only it were true!, an expression used often in Italian to express desire, hope, and a vision of a bright future. The vineyard blocks that make up this blend are further away from the nearby sea, closer to the fertile hillside. The loamy, clay-rich soils here are known as terre brune meaning dark brown earth, ideal for the cultivation of wines with richness, depth and minerality.
Starts out rich, yet underscored by vibrant acidity and a line of refined tannins, which provide the support for this red's black currant, black cherry, wild herb and iron flavors. Finishes lean and firm. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2030. 6,670 cases made, 1,400 cases imported.
