Bolgheri, Tuscany

Cá Marcanda is Gaja’s purpose-built winery at Castagneto Carducci on the Tuscan coast, where he has planted 150 acres mainly with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and some Cabernet Franc and Syrah. The area is excellent for growing these grape varieties, with hot summer days freshened by sea breezes and cool night-time temperatures ideal for fully ripened grapes. Gaja’s aim here is to transfer the experience of his Piedmontese culture to a Tuscan setting.
