Tuscany's Maremma area, south of Livorno, is one of Italy's most dynamic wine regions. Cą 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.

Grape varieties: Merlot 50% , Cabernet Sauvignon 25%, Cabernet Franc 25%
Food Pairings: We suggest to seve at 19° C. Good with stuffed game, pot roast meat.
