|This is a gorgeous vintage that continues to flesh out beautifully. I added an extra point to my score since the last time I tasted the 2019 Bolgheri Rosso Camarcanda in order to underline the great potential of this vintage. This wine could legally be a Bolgheri Superiore, but Angelo Gaja prefers not to use qualifying wine terms such as Superiore, Classico or Riserva in his various wine projects spanning from Piedmont to Tuscany to Etna. Semantics aside, this is a gorgeous wine—one of the best made at Ca' Marcanda for sure—with impressive intensity and balance. Dark fruit and blackberry are contrasted against spice, tobacco, grilled rosemary and Mediterranean bramble. The 2019 vintage saw favorable weather conditions and "just the right amount of rain," Gaja says.” 97 Points Monica Larner Wine Advocate Jan 2023
The 2019 Gaja Camarcanda has green, herbaceous, blackberry and strawberry aromas and flavors set in a sumptuous, velvety texture. What an exciting combination of richness and freshness! The wine combines sappy, dark, woodland, forest-floor flavors with a light dusting of creamy oak and just a memory of roasted coffee on the finish. Combining a vivid acidity and very fine tannins with a luxurious, voluptuous texture (without being heavy), it has a supreme drinkability and a beautifully unforced style. 97 Points Susan Hulme, The Wine Independent, Dec 2022
