Bolgheri "CAMARCANDA" DOC Gaja Cà Marcanda
A prestigious “Taglio Bordolese” (typical assembly of Bordeaux) composed by 50% Merlot, 40%Cabernet Sauvgnon and 10% Cabernet Franc. The vineyards were planted by technicians of the winery Ca’ Marcanda on white lands, full of limestone, clay and stones. The wine making requires that the grapes are managed separately, with a period of fermentation and maceration that lasts approximately 15 days. After 18 moths aging in wooden barrels the three varieties are assembled and pass other 12 months in the bottle.
