Gaja Ca'Marcanda Vistamare 2019

Vistamare 2019 is layered and complex on the nose, based on broom and jasmine, followed by gooseberry, flint and rich accents of honey. It is far delicate, yet not too stressed on the sweetish notes. Intensely fragrant with hints of peach stone, skin of citrus fruits, mango and sage. Creamy, with vibrant acidity, smooth and a refreshing finish.

Winemaker Notes
Vistamare 2019 is layered and complex on the nose, based on
broom and jasmine, followed by gooseberry, flint and rich
accents of honey. It is far delicate, yet not too stressed on the
sweetish notes. Intensely fragrant with hints of peach stone,
skin of citrus fruits, mango and sage. Creamy, with vibrant
acidity, smooth and a refreshing finish.


Vineyard
“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 colours of the Tuscan sea.


Winemaking
Very limited production, a characterful expression of Tuscan
white winemaking which is fermented and aged in stainless
steel tanks and barrels.


Vintage
The initial months of 2019 confirm the climate change under
way, which is demonstrated by the occurrence of much more
frequent extreme events with shifts in seasons and brief but
intense rainfalls. The winter was cold and dry; an increase in temperature was only recorded in
the final days of February with figures well over the seasonal average. Stormy showers
characterised the spring months, especially in May, compensating for the lack of rain over the
winter. June and July were, however, characterised by very hot and dry days. The temperature
fluctuations between night and day helped the vines to remain balanced in a year which, up until
the end of July, had been worryingly dry. At the end of July, a total of 80 mm of rain fell in one day
alone, followed by a drastic drop in temperatures for about 10 days. The grapes benefited greatly
from this abundant rainfall, which contributed towards a slower and more balanced ripening. In
August, there were further downpours, which delayed harvesting (10-15 days later than last
year) and resulted in grapes with riper skins and elegant tannins. In September, the Tramontane
winds dried the grape bunches helping to keep the grapes healthy and allowing the harvest to
start with the white wine varieties in the first few days of September and the red wine varieties
on September 15. The harvest terminated on October 6 with great satisfaction.
