Gaja Ca'Marcanda Magari 2002
Wine SpectatorClean and fruity, with lovely berry, tobacco and chocolate character. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Nicely balanced for the vintage. Best after 2005. 5,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThis is only the second commercial release of the wines from Angelo Gaja's sizeable - 250 acres of vineyards and still growing - new property in Bolgheri on the Tuscany coast. One of the objectives, from the start, was to make important quantities of wine of a significant level, and the 2002 Magari, which might be called the "deuxieme vin" of this Bordeaux-styled operation fits the bill with its fresh and ripe berry sensations, pleasurable light notes of herbs, vigor, length, and sweet fruit. Drink: 2006-2010.
