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 to him. This vineyard is from one of the stoniest sites of the Ca’Marcanda estate in Castagneto Carducci (Bolgheri). It's 100% Terre Bianche (white soils) that are ideal for producing long-lived wines. This is the winery’s flagship wine and is only produced in exceptional years, guaranteeing quality and assurance to buyers and collectors. Juiciness and concentration are the features of the 2015 vintage which shows elegance and yet drinkability.
Grapes: 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc
The nose opens with earthy and balsamic notes of violet, roots, bark and sap. The palate is rich, with concentrated and crunchy notes of blackberry, blueberry, licorice, flint and red-orange. The finish is savory, almost meaty, with a precise note of iron that lingers in the aftertaste. Fine-grained tannins, embraced by a mellow body of strong personality. The backbone of this wine is the firm structure perfectly balanced by the fruit concentration. Remarkable aging potential.
