Camarcanda is the flagship Cabernet of Gaia's Bolgheri winery Ca'Marcanda. The 2020 begins with a distinctive nose of bright, leafy aromas of blackberries and blackberry leaves. On the palate, the 2020 is fresh, juicy and expressive, with the Cabernet Franc showing particularly well. It is perhaps a bit less concentrated in the middle, but I love the purity and transparency of the flavors. There is a fine cocoa, smoky, dark flavor on the finish, and the tannins are very refined. A charming wine with a certain fragility that adds to its charm and great purity of flavor and aroma.
