Gaja Ca'Marcanda - Bolgheri 'Camarcanda' 2018


Ca’Marcanda was founded by wine icon Angelo Gaja in 1996, as a way for him to apply his experience to growing international varietals in the Maremma.

This wine derives its name from the winery. CaMarcanda is the Piedmontese term for “house of endless negotiations” and refers to the many hours that Angelo Gaja spent convincing the property’s previous owners to sell the estate to him. Camarcanda is sourced from one of the stoniest sites of the entire estate, based in Castagneto Carducci in the World famous Bolgheri region on the west coast of Tuscany. The vineyards selected for this bottling are at the base of the hills, composed of 100% terre bianche  (white soils), primarily limestone and calcareous ancient sea floor fossils. These soils are ideal for producing rich, structured long-lived red wines. The wine will have a very long life ahead, easily 15 to 20 years, probably longer if cellared properly.

Deep garnet Color. Initial aromas evoke violet, cassis, dark licorice and a spicy note of black pepper, leading to undertones of aromatic herbs, incense, dried rose petals, clove and cedar.
