Gaja Magari 2015
Magari means if only it were true!, an expression used often in Italian to express desire, hope, and a vision of a bright future.
Loam- and clay-rich terre brune,brown earth, ideal for the cultivation of wines with pronounced minerality and notes of tar.
With its lush Merlot fruit and its spicy Cabernet character, Magari expresses the essence of Bolgheri, rich and well-rounded, with an elegant, silky finish.
Inky dark, exploding with aromas of juicy berries, exotic spices, cigar wrapper, and fresh-cut herbs, the 2015 Magari offers sheer delight to wine-lovers, both new to Italian wine and seasoned aficionados. This lush wine, half Merlot with 25% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, is one of the greatest Super Tuscans around. Magari gets its name from a common Italian expression, whose ironic translation means, “if only it were true,” and serves to highlight the joy of its sincerely joyful drinking. Elegant and rich, this 2013 bottling shows the hand of Angelo and the finesse of his daughter, Gaia, who assumes more control in the winemaking every year. It’s a ripe vintage that offers terrific near-term appeal, while still having the structure for long-term pleasure.
