2017 Gaja Ca'Marcanda Vistamare

Share on Facebook

Generous bouquet of peach, apricot, sage and marine notes revealing a fresh, rounded and lingering taste in the mouth. The freshness and herbaceous notes of Vermentino combine with the remarkable complexity and roundess of Viognier.



The playful name of this wine was inspired by the sea breeze, sun, and cheerful, lighthearted outlook of the Tuscan coast. "Vistamare" means sea view and is often used by the coastal hoteliers to entice would-be guests, even though their rooms may only offer a limited view of the Mediterranean. The vineyards used for Vistamare actually enjoy a panoramic view of the Tuscan horizon and their grapes are gently touched by salty air and the brilliant colors of the the Tuscan sea.



(91 Points) This is this publication's first review for Vistamare, which has been produced since 2009. The 2017 Vistamare is a blend of 45% Vermentino, 40% Viognier and 15% Fiano. The Vermentino and Fiano are fermented in stainless steel, while the Viognier goes into wood—some with lees aging and some not, to avoid it being too heavy and fat. The vines are shaded, thanks to the leafy canopy (with a view of the sea in Bibbona, hence the name "vistamare"), to keep the fruit cool and to preserve the acidity. The 2017 vintage shows concentrated freshness with Mediterranean notes of mint and sage.  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
