Cà Marcanda Description

Tuscany's Maremma area, south of Livorno, is one of Italy's most dynamic wine regions. Cà Marcanda, the Gaja family's newest wine estate, is located in the famed Bolgheri district in the commune of Castagneto Carducci.
Bolgheri's hot summer days, freschened by brisk sea air and cool nights, create an ideal climate for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah vines. The estate is characterized by two distinct soil types - terre brune (dark soil), predominately loam and clay, and terre chiare (white soil), which is richer in limestone and filled with stones and pebbles.
As in the native Piedmont, Angelo Gaja's goal is to produce wines that are true to their origins, reflecting the distinctive qualities of their unique terroir.

Wines from Cà Marcanda

Promis - Tuscan I.G.T.

Tasting Notes: Fruit and spice in the nose, fruit and leather in the taste and smooth on the back end. You can really taste the unmistakable elegance of the sangiovese. We drank this with pasta in a garlic-cream-tomato sauce and it was a great match-up. I would think almost any pasta will compliment this wine.
Grape varieties: Merlot 55%, Syrah 35% and Sangiovese 10%.
Food Pairings: We suggest to seve at 19° C. Good with red and white meats, pork, poultry and aged cheeses.

Camarcanda - Bolgheri D.O.C.

Tasting Notes: It is the major wine of the estate and is clearly more intense and concentrated, more characterized in its expression of cassis, plums, and sweet herbs, and endowed with both a solid structure and a ripe, vanilla-laced close. The 2000 version of the wine seemed a bit richer and rounder, but additional bottle time may well close the gap.
Grape varieties: Merlot 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 40% and Cabernet franc 10%
Food Pairings: We suggest to serve at 20° C. Good with red meat, pasta with game sauce, steak.
