Gaja Ca' Marcanda Ca Marcanda 2008

Gaja Ca' Marcanda Ca Marcanda 750ml 2008        
Sku: 1798709*

This wine derives its name from Ca’Marcanda, the winery. Ca'Marcanda is the Piedmontese term for "house of endless negotiations" and it refers to the many hours that Angelo Gaja spent convincing the property's previous owners to sell the estate vineyard that produces this wine to him. This vineyard is from one of the stoniest sites of the Ca'Marcanda estate in Castegneto Carducci (Bolgheri). Its 100% terre bianche (white soils) are ideal for producing long-lived wines.

All the components are integrated in this young, fleshy red. Vanilla and toast notes from the oak frame cherry and black currant fruit. Harmonious and sophisticated, with a fresh, vibrant finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2023. 300 cases imported.-BS

The 2008 Camarcanda emerges from the glass with smoke, scorched earth, grilled herbs, black cherries and menthol. The aromas and flavors build beautifully towards a long finish framed by firm yet well-integrated tannins. The 2008 shows excellent balance in a fresh, vibrant style that is made relatively approachable because of the wine’s mid-weight structure. That said, the wine shows more and more freshness as it sits in the glass and may be headed for a period of dormancy. Magari is 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc that spends 18 months in French oak barrels.
