"Magari means "if only it were true!," an expression used often in Italian to express desire, hope, and a vision of a bright future. The soil is made of loam and clay-rich terre brune, brown earth, ideal for the cultivation of wines with pronounced minerality and notes of goudron and tar. With its lush Merlot fruit and its spicy Cabernet character, Magari expresses the essence of Bolgheri, rich and well-rounded, with an elegant, silky finish." —importer

Blend: 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc
"The 2014 Bolgheri Rosso Magari opens to a dark garnet color and pretty ruby highlights. I really love the crispness, acidity and linearity of this vintage that stands so far away from the more opulent and robust editions of the past. Angelo Gaja has interpreted the 2014 vintage very nicely in his beautiful property on the Tuscan Coast. Instead of looking for power and thickness, he strives for finesse and crispness. Yes, the vintage was cooler and wetter, but his skill in obtaining these qualities should not go overlooked. This is a different kind of Gaja wine (made with Merlot and Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc), but a very worthwhile expression nonetheless." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"The 2014 Magari is another excellent wine within the context of the year. In this vintage, Magari is a bit more savory and earthy than it usually is, but at the same time, there is good depth to the fruit. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later. Drinking window: 2016 - 2022." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
