Bolgheri, Tuscany


Ca'marcanda is the winery owned by Angelo Gaja in Bolgheri. Angelo had long contemplated a project in Bolgheri in the Upper Maremma, on the Mediterranean coast south of Pisa. With typical attention to detail, he researched the best sites and set out to convince the owners of the one he preferred, an olive grove and fruit orchard with a small number of vines, of their enthusiasm to sell their estate to him.

That the winery's name is Piedmontese for house of endless negotiations tells the story, but what happened once Angelo succeeded in winning them over is amazing. In conjunction with the architect, Giovanni Bo, Angelo has masterminded one of the finest wineries to be built in recent times - from both an aesthetic and a practical point of view. The visible portions of the winery have been clad in the stone recovered during the excavations of the cellars, and the slopes which cover the bulk of the building have been transformed into olive groves by the transplanting of 150 year old trees. The overall effect is of a building that is rooted in the landscape and yet is dramatically contemporary. The brilliance of the interior makes an even greater impact as a result. The vineyard area is characterised by two distinct soil types - a red soil which contains more loam and clay and a whiter soil, where there is more limestone and deposits of bright white stones. These soil types, when combined with the warm day time maritime climate and cool evenings provide the perfect conditions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and even Syrah, planted in 1996. F

rom the extensive research Angelo had undertaken he was able to pinpoint plantings by variety, best suiting the soil type and micro climatic conditions. The first vintage in 2000 was encouraging, but as the vines have become more established and Angelo and the winemaking team more familiar with the site, the results are nothing short of dramatic. In 2004 the estate came of age and progress since is exciting. Today, Ca'Marcanda has rightly established a reputation as one of the leading estates in Bolgheri.
