Angelo Gaja is internationally certainly the most well-known Italian wine landowner. Repeated he was honoured by "Decanter" and "Winespectator "as" Man of The Year" and no winegrower gained the "Tre Bicchieri" of the Gambero Rosso as often as him. Without him the Piedmont, particularly the Langhe, would have only half as much reputation today. Angelo Gaja is a happy mixture of wine doer and manager. No-one appears in public as eloquently as him, no-one different one in Italy can permit itself to sell its plants so expensively but no other wine-growing estate shows such a big resistance at top-quality wines either.
In the year 1996 Angelo Gaja succeeded to purchase the wine-growing estate with today's name Ca` Marcanda in Bolgheri after long negotiations. At present, 3 red wines are produced there, they bear the hallmarks of Gaja unmistakably.
