The story of this estate’s ascendancy is captivating, full of passion and innovation. The Gaja name was established in the region in the 1850s when Angelo’s great, great grandfather Giovanni Gaja moved to Piedmont and then set up a tavern in the lovely village of Barbaresco. Since then 5 generations of the Gaja family have been involved in the winemaking process. Angelo Gaja joined the business in 1961, taking over the reins from his father Giovanni. It was at this point that the… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 95 Points (2016)
The 60/30/10 blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot in the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Magari produces an expressive and opulent red wine, with great acidity and definition. The wine is firm and tightly wound, with secondary complexity that expresses itself in terms of tar, leather and spice. The tannins are supple and soft.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 94 Points (2016)
Black currant and black cherry fruit mingles with mint, olive, graphite and tobacco notes in this red. Elegant, with ample density and bright acidity, ending in a firm, fruit-, mineral- and herb-tinged aftertaste. Well-proportioned and classy. Cabernet Franc blend. Best from 2020 through 2030.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2016)
A very fresh nose with tons of dark fruit, such as brambleberries, blueberries and dark cherries, as well as vanilla, dried herbs and eucalyptus. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a tight finish.?

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2014)
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. -- Antonio Galloni

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 89 Points (2014)
Aromas of dark-skinned fruit, toast, mint and a whiff of espresso lead the nose on this Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc blend. The straightforward palate is on the lean side, offering raw red currant, coffee and star anise alongside firm acidity. Close-grained tannins leave a drying finish.

This is 'Super Tuscan' which means they tend to use more international grape varieties in their wines. This wine in particular is made Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is a very rich, complex wine, with dark berry fruit flavours and hints of tobacco, chocolate and spice.

Greywacke Chardonnay 2018
Greywacke Chardonnay 2018
An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, burnt orange and white nectarine interwoven with aromas of smoked almonds, hazelnut, and freshly cut hay. The savoury notes carries through onto the rich, textural palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp, citrus finish.
