Ca’ Marcanda’ – ‘the house that was haggled’ for by Angelo Gaja in the mid-90s with the state of the art winery finished in 2002. Bedded into the Bolgheri landscape it is Gaja’s home in this most modern of appelations on the Tuscan coast. Bolgheri’s hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights, create an ideal climate for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese 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 his native Piedmont, Angelo Gaja’s goal is to produce wines that are true to their origins, reflecting the distinctive qualities of their unique terroir.
