Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Gaja Ca'Marcanda Magari 2021

Purplish red in color, the nose presents a wonderful mixture of black fruits such as plums and blackcurrants. Notes of black tea, and hints of aromatic herbs commonly found in the Mediterranean like rosemary and thyme, lead to a structured mouthfeel with tannins that are denser and more elegant reflecting the style of the vintage all culminating with a salinity representative of a classic Bolgheri style.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 96:

The Ca' Marcanda 2021 Bolgheri Rosso Magari is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. It brings forth a floral bouquet, showing subtle elegance at the start. Give it a few moments and the wine hits on all cylinders with integrated oak, bright fruit, black cherry, pomegranate seed, iris root and dustings of oak spice that never overshadow the fruit. The wine is refreshingly uncomplicated but shows refined nuance instead. This is the proverbial understated elegance that Gaja achieves so beautifully. It closes with lovely acidity and dusty tannins.

James Suckling Review - Rated 94:

Lots of cabernet franc character with currant bush and fresh herbs like basil and lemongrass. Medium to full body, with firm tannins and a savory finish. Some tomato leaf and currant undertones. A blend of cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 93:
Tobacco, licorice and cedar aromas and flavors frame the core of black currant and black cherry fruit in this intense, vibrant red. An iron element emerges too, as this builds to the lingering finish, with fine balance and a lingering aftertaste. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2025 through 2038.
