2016 Angelo Gaja’s Ca’ Marcanda Camarcanda: “Kudos to Angelo Gaja” RP

“Angelo Gaja’s wines, spanning from Piedmont in the far North of Italy to his two Tuscan estates, are showing consistent results and fully integrated production. This is especially true of his beloved Ca’ Marcanda estate” Monica Larner

97 point 2016 Ca’ Marcanda Camarcanda, Angelo Gaja

We have secured a small but perfectly formed parcel of the stunning 97-point 2016 Camarcanda from Angelo Gaja’s Ca’ Marcanda estate in Bolgheri.

This flagship wine, made only in exceptional years, consistently receives rave reviews from the coveted “Terre Bianche”. The high composition of calcerous clay and free draining soils provide ideal conditions, producing long lived Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc wines.

After 18 months of ageing in oak, separate lots are blended and aged for several months before release.

A remarkably powerful and elegant wine, it reveals crunchy fruit and pronounced finely grained tannins.

This is another masterstroke from Gaja and not to be missed, especially in the limited, larger formats – Magnum (150cl) and Methusalah (600cl) are also available!

 

 

“This is another beautiful creation from the Gaja family. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Camarcanda (Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc) is infinitely smooth and finely textured down to the very last pixel in what is a high-resolution panoramic photograph. The core of the wine is packed tight with an explosion of flavor and concentration with so much dark fruit, spice, tobacco and sweet tobacco that unfurls from deep inside. This wine will have a long and, I am quite sure, very happy aging future ahead. It shows utmost precision and balance, with long persistence and a beautifully polished texture. Some 22,000 bottles were made” 97 points, Monica Larner
