Product guide note

This is 'Super Tuscan' which means they tend to use more international grape varieties in their wines. This wine in particular is made Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is a very rich, complex wine, with dark berry fruit flavours and hints of tobacco, chocolate and spice.

Production information

Producer: Gaja

Gaja has sometimes shocked traditionalists at home in Italy, yet over time his wines have proven to remain true to their local roots and have become staples in the best restaurants. Quality is the keynote for Gaja wines and the Ca’Marcanda wines from the Tuscan coast bear the power and velvety lushness that all Gaja wines are known for.

Production note

Different vineyards, all belonging to Ca’Marcanda, planted on terre chiare (white soil) – calcareous and alluvial soils with a good presence of chalk. The 3 varieties are vinified separately and blended after malolactic fermentation. The wine ages in new and slightly used barriques for 18 months and undergoes at least 12 months of bottle ageing at the winery before being released.
