Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"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."

Product Description:

"Magari means 'if only it were true!, an expression used often in Italian to express desire, hope, and a vision of a bright future. The soil is made of loam and clay-rich terre brune, brown earth, ideal for the cultivation of wines with pronounced minerality. With its lush Merlot fruit and its spicy Cabernet character, Magari expresses the essence of Bolgheri, rich and well-rounded, with an elegant, silky finish. The 2014 vintage was an overall small crop due to the challenge of a very cool and rainy year. However, the wine is pleasing, expressing intense and mineral flavors." -Importer
