The name of this wine "Magari" (literally, maybe) comes ironically from the idea of an "important" wine, demonstrating the success of Angelo Gaia's search for new lands in Tuscany. This red wine is powerful, sumptuous and harmonious and it brings all the flavors of Tuscany in your glass.
"Magari" has a deep ruby red color. Aromas of red ripe fruits, like plums, currants, blackberries, sweet scents of jam and slight vegetal and mineral notes. The taste is full and balanced, thanks to soft and velvety tannins.

Chosen for you
The Gaja family settled down in Piedmont in the mid-17th century. Five generations have been involved in winemaking since Giovanni Gaja, in 1859, founded his winery in Barbaresco, in the heart of the Langhe area. Angelo, Giovanni’s son, represents the second generation. In 1905 he married Clotilde Rey, a determined and ambitious woman who strongly influenced him to make production choices entirely committed to quality. Giovanni Gaja, Clotilde’s and Angelo’s son, who died in 2002, was an outstanding artisan.
