Blend: 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc
The word "Magari" has several meanings: "if only," "would that it were true," "perhaps." Ca'Marcanda's unique combination of terre brune (dark soils: loam and clay) and terre blanche (white soils: stones and pebbles) is reflected in Magari.
On the nose the Magari has lush M
erlot fruit and spicy Cabernet aromas.
On the palate, Magari showcases the essence of the upper Maremma. It's a full, rich, well-rounded wine with an elegant, silky finish.
"Earthy and very rich, offering spice, berry and dark cherry character. Velvety and pretty. An opulent wine. Best after 2012."
"The 2007 Magari boasts a gorgeous nose redolent of grilled herbs, menthol, spices, and dark fruit. This is a relatively lithe Magari that convinces for its length, balance, and finessed personality. Magari is 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity 2010-2017."
The Wine Advocate
"Magari is a uniquely nostalgic Italian word that loosely translates as 'if only.' If only Angelo Gaja released a Magari of this caliber every vintage. The wine is smooth and rich with lingering tones of cherry and sweet spice."
