Ca' Marcanda Promis 2016

Ca' Marcanda's proprietary name Promis (pronounced proh-MEESS) was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfilment, and hope. The promise of quality and the reward of diligence and excellence. A red wine blend of Merlot (55%), Syrah (35%) and Sangiovese (10%), the grapes are grown in the terre brune (rich, dark soils) of Bolgheri and in the neighbouring area of Bibbona. Aged in slightly used barriques for 12 months followed by several months of bottle ageing before release, Promis offers the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah, complemented by the vibrant structure of Sangiovese, Tuscany’s emblematic grape. Promis opens with floral aromas of wild rose and violet, then it turns into a more earthy bouquet with hints of maritime pine, eucalyptus and wet stone. The palate is fresh and juicy, with notes of red and black fruits - raspberry, wild strawberry and mulberry - alongside creamy, smooth tannins. The final is sapid with a smoky and spicy character. With its notes of rosemary, wild fennel and embers Promis perfectly mirrors the Mediterranean scrubland which surrounds it.
