James Suckling: 94 Points for Camarcanda 2016

camarcanda-slider ready James Suckling has awarded 94 points to Camarcanda 2016. “Fragrant florals punctuate the nose, ranging from lavender to hyacinth, and there are hints of heather and thyme, too. Citrusy undertones abound. There’s a profundity to the center palate, which is decked out in sheets of dark fruit-flavored, muscular tannins that retain a telltale elegance, as they envelop the peripheries of the mouth. Long and mineral, this is a delightful wine now and will continue to open up as the years go by. Drink from 2023.”

James Suckling: 93 Points for Magari 2017

margri-slider ready James Suckling awarded 93 Points to Ca’ Marcanda Magari 2017. “This is a pure, focused Bolgheri with bright blueberries, freshly picked blackcurrants and citrus. All the more impressively in this hot vintage, the tannins are very tightly strung, fine and grainy, while the finish is medium-long and vivacious. Great drive and composure to this medium-to full-bodied red. Drink from 2021.”

Jeb Dunnuck: 96 Points for Camarcanda 2016

camarcanda-slider ready Jeb Dunnuck has awarded 96 points to Camarcanda 2016. “The 2016 Ca’Marcanda sports an almost opaque purple color as well as a heavenly bouquet of blackcurrants, smoked earth, charcoal, graphite, and tobacco. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, aged 18 months in French oak, this full-bodied, remarkably pure red has ultra-fine tannins, plenty of acidity (although it’s perfectly integrated), flawless balance, and a great, great finish. Drink this beautiful, sexy Toscana over the coming 15 years or more.”

Wine Advocate: 91+ Points for Vistamare 2017

  vistare-slider ready Monica Larner of Robert Parker Wine Advocate awarded 91+ points to Vistamare 2017. “This is this publication’s first review for Vistamare, which has been produced since 2009. The 2017 Vistamare is a blend of 45% Vermentino, 40% Viognier and 15% Fiano. The Vermentino and Fiano are fermented in stainless steel, while the Viognier goes into wood—some with lees aging and some not, to avoid it being too heavy and fat. The vines are shaded, thanks to the leafy canopy (with a view of the sea in Bibbona, hence the name “vistamare”), to keep the fruit cool and to preserve the acidity. The 2017 vintage shows concentrated freshness with Mediterranean notes of mint and sage.”

Wine Advocate: 97 Points for Camarcanda 2016

camarcanda-slider ready

Monica Larner of Robert Parker Wine Advocate awarded 97 points to Camarcanda 2016.

“This is another beautiful creation from the Gaja family. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Camarcanda (Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc) is infinitely smooth and finely textured down to the very last pixel in what is a high-resolution panoramic photograph. The core of the wine is packed tight with an explosion of flavor and concentration with so much dark fruit, spice, tobacco and sweet tobacco that unfurls from deep inside. This wine will have a long and, I am quite sure, very happy aging future ahead. It shows utmost precision and balance, with long persistence and a beautifully polished texture. Some 22,000 bottles were made.”
