"The winery's flagship wine takes its name from the estate, the ca'marcanda, the house of endless negotiations. The name 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 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, structured wines. Deep red in color. The nose is rich in fruit and multi-layered aromas. Complex taste with firm tannic structure. Densely woven with an expressive mineral character." —winemaker

Blend: 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc
"The 2010 Bolgheri Camarcanda is an exceptional wine with a level of aromatic intensity and integrity that is impossible to exaggerate. The blend is Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, in that order of importance. The bouquet is impeccable and refined, with deep layers of Morello cherry, cassis, dried blackberry and spice that peel back in quick succession. The oak component is beautifully integrated, imparting notes of chocolate and tobacco that complete this beautiful portrait of Tuscan winemaking. Hold this bottle for a few more years." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"Powerful, showing cherry, blackberry, cedar and oak spice flavors. The tannins are mouthcoating, but all the elements dovetail on the long finish. The aftertaste is fresh, echoing fruit and toasted oak. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2030. 900 cases made." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

"A delicious young red from Bolgheri with fresh dark fruits and a clean finish. Full body and fine tannins. Slightly chewy but the tannins show a lovely texture. This wine still needs time to soften in bottle. Try in 2015." —James Suckling
