Along the Tuscan seaboard extending south from Livorno lies the Maremma. For centuries a marshland, it has established itself over the last quarter century as one of Italy's most prestigious wine regions. It is in this region that Angelo Gaja has begun his new winemaking venture. In 1996, along the road between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, Gaja began planting 150 acres of vineyards, primarily with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but also Cabernet Franc and Syrah. This 2014 is 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese aged 12 months in French oak, then blended and aged for several months in the bottle before release. James Suckling socred it 90 points and said "A soft and fruity red with subtle tannins, light chocolate and currant character. Medium finish. Succulent and delicious. Drink now."
