Gaja 2014 Ca' Marcanda Magari Bolgheri
Deep and vivid purple. Features the fresh and floral character of Cabernet Franc. Complex aromas of balsamic herbs, notably mint and eucalyptus, ink and sweet spices. Hint of anise and dill, lavender and violet flowers. Juicy and sweet, with notes of crunchy black cherry. Well balanced and harmonic in the finish.

Wine Advocate - 92 Points
The 2014 Bolgheri Rosso Magari opens to a dark garnet color and pretty ruby highlights. I really love the crispness, acidity and linearity of this vintage that stands so far away from the more opulent and robust editions of the past. Angelo Gaja has interpreted the 2014 vintage very nicely in his beautiful property on the Tuscan Coast. Instead of looking for power and thickness, he strives for finesse and crispness. Yes, the vintage was cooler and wetter, but his skill in obtaining these qualities should not go overlooked. This is a different kind of Gaja wine (made with Merlot and Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc), but a very worthwhile expression nonetheless. I will give it a shorter drinking window, however.

Vinous - 91 Points
The 2014 Magari is another excellent wine within the context of the year. In this vintage, Magari is a bit more savory and earthy than it usually is, but at the same time, there is good depth to the fruit. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later.
