2015 Ca'Marcanda, Bolgheri Rosso, Gaja, Tuscany

80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. The nose is spicy, with pepper and dark cassis. So deep and brooding. There’s nice texture and very fine tannins that coat every part of the mouth with freshness and lift, with lovely juice and fine energy on the finish. So much salinity on the finish, it stays precise and long.

Gaja

If one estate defines Barbaresco, it’s Gaja. It’s the oldest winery in the DOC, founded in 1859. But it’s the extravagant Angelo Gaja who really put the estate on the map, and Barbaresco itself. 1967 was the first vintage of his ‘Sori’ bottlings: he was one of the pioneers of single vineyard wines in Italy. The results speak for themselves, and the influence of his daughter Gaia Gaja who’s come on board: these wines routinely score among the highest for the entire region.
