This wine is dedicated to Philip Mazzei (1730-1816), an illustrious ancestor of the family's, passionate grape grower, political thinker, and "citizen of the world". Made with a blend of grapes selected from all the Mazzei's estates, Philip is the quintessence of Tuscany. It embodies the "New World" spirit of Tuscan winemaking, best represents the "revolutionary" character of Philip Mazzei, and expresses our desire to pursue happiness.
Gaja Ca' Marcanda "Vistamare" Vermentino, Viognier 2016
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 the salt air and brilliant colors of the Tuscan sea.
Full, ripe and intriguing body, long taste with pleasant and fresh aftertaste.
