Ca’Marcanda turns 20!
These have been twenty exciting years full of many satisfactions. Thanks to the beauty of the place, the peace that the landscape instils, and the elegance and the fullness of its wines, our love for Bolgheri renews itself every day. These have been twenty years of commitment, experimentation and research to fully express the characteristics of the
soils, to elevate the wines’ aging potential and their elegance. To represent the exceptional territory of Bolgheri, in the last three years we have also re-thought some of our vineyards. We favored more late ripening varieties, able to express fresh notes and more moderate alcohol. The Merlot vineyards have been downsized to include only the areas that proved consistency and quality potential in line with our goals.
On some vineyards, we preferred grafting Cabernet Franc, which over the years charmed us with its freshness and its botanical notes. We considered other vineyards more suitable to express the floral and dark fruit notes, elegant and compact tannins
of Cabernet Sauvignon. Thus, from 2015 vintage, the Ca’Marcanda wines will partially change their composition.
PROMIS will not change in its blend: through the years, its fulfilling perfumes have acquired complexity and its body has become juicier and silkier.
MAGARI will predominantly be made of Cabernet Franc with a small addition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The last two will contribute to its structure, acidity, roundness and color.
CAMARCANDA has not been bottled in the 2014 vintage and starting from 2015 it will be composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc.
The blends are thus the following:
60% CABERNET FRANC
30% CABERNET SAUVIGNON
10% PETIT VERDOT
80% CABERNET SAUVIGNON
20% CABERNET FRANC
