Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"Earthy and very rich, offering spice, berry and dark cherry character. Velvety and pretty. An opulent wine. Best after 2012."
92 Points

"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."
92 Points

"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."
