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. Published: Feb 15 2024

The 2021 Magari is the most elegant Magari I can remember tasting. Vibrant nuanced and medium in body the 2021 possesses notable energy from start to finish. All the elements are so nicely balanced. Dark cherry mocha dried herbs licorice and menthol are finely sculpted in this super-expressive Bolgheri red. Terrific. (Drink between 2023-2033)


Wine Spectator: 93 Points

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. 6500 cases made 1600 cases imported.
