Ca' Marcanda Toscana Magari Gaja 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Upped to a Bolgheri status (previously this wine was identified as a Toscana IGT), the 2012 Bolgheri Magari is simply delightful. This vintage shows extra heft and dimension that allows the wine to spread smoothly over the palate. Merlot is blended with Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon, and the taste profile in the 2012 vintage definitely favors the Merlot component. Soft cherry and dark berry segue to spice and moist tobacco. The structure of the two Cabernet varieties shows in the mouth where the wine is elegant and tight...Angelo Gaja’s Ca’Marcanda estate has hit its stride with this latest set of wines...they are among the finest expressions on the Tuscan coast....94." WA 10/31/14 "Bright and firm with sliced-lemon, blueberry and almond character throughout. Full body, firm tannins and a clean finish. Clean and fresh. Better in 2016...93" JS 10/14
