Ca’ Marcanda Magari 2015

$63.80

Magari means if only it were true!, an expression used often in Italian to express desire, hope, and a vision of a bright future.

Bright and deep color. The nose is rich and concentrated, it starts fresh to then develop balsamic notes, and scents of graphite, juniper and liquorice. Then it turns into a more mellow character with dark fruit and rhubarb. The palate is sweet and voluminous, with notes of mulberry and sour cherry. Fine-grained, silky tannins. Long-lasting, sapid final.

Ca’Marcanda CAMARCANDA 2009

$108.50

The flagship wine, the 2009 Bolgheri Camarcanda, is a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and a small component of Cabernet Franc. Perhaps inspired by the elegance and finesse of Nebbiolo, Angelo has miraculously applied those traits to the exuberant winemaking world of coastal Tuscany. This blended red shows enormous attention to detail with sharp and focused aromas of black inky, polished river stone, blackberry and spice. The mouthfeel is firm with soft fruity layers at the back. You can count on a wide drinking window.

Château de Pez 2009

It is to be noted that the wine undergoes absolutely no filtration.

David ROBERTS MW (Avril 2015) – 90/92 – This has everything that one expects from a good Talbot. Brilliant purple in color, it has a fine natural concentration, without being forced. It is enticing with hints of eucalyptus and cassis, the tannins are grainy but fully developed and it finishes long and full. Drink 2022-2033

Tasting notes

A wine of the aromatic intensity and silkiness of texture was something rather unexpected in such a hot vintage as the 2011. The Merlot gave sweetness of flavor, density of texture, and a very intense aroma of black fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon contributed an exceptional richness along with additional black fruit aromas, liquorice, and not the slightest hint of greenness. Cabernet Franc added a magnificent balance and poise, smoothing the elevated tannic power of the other varieties and, finally, the Petit Verdot supplied that light touch of spice which completed the bouquet. This is a concentrated wine, one of great class and elegance, a wine capable of a very lengthy aging and positive evolution in the bottle.
