Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Promis opens with floral aromas of wild rose and violet, then it turns into a more earthy bouquet with hints of maritime pine, eucalyptus, roots, wet stones. The palate is fresh and juicy, with notes of red and black fruits – raspberry, wild strawberry and mulberry. Creamy, smooth tannins. The final is sapid with a peculiar smoky and spicy character. With its notes of rosemary, wild fennel, embers, the 2016 Promis perfectly mirrors the Mediterranean scrubland which surrounds it.

Blend: 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
Aromas of dark berries, licorice and sandalwood following through to medium to full body with firm tannins. A juicy and delicious finish. Drink in 2019.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Black currant, blackberry, herb, mineral and tobacco notes ply this firm, intense and sinewy red. The taut profile and compact structure persist on the long finish. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2030. 3,400 cases imported.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Promis (pronounced proh-MEESS) is a blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, and 10% Sangiovese that were fermented separately and aged in barrel, with blending occurring just a few months before bottling. It offers a juicy, charming style in its black cherry and blackberry fruits as well as outstanding notes of spice, earth, and tobacco. This elegant, medium-bodied beauty has nicely integrated acidity, ultra-fine tannins, and a silky, mid-weight yet just incredibly charming style that's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years or so.

Gaja Ca' Marcanda, Italy
Image of winery
Along the Tuscan seaboard extending south from Livorno lies the Maremma. For centuries a marshland, it has established itself over the last quarter century as one of Italy's most prestigious wine regions.

The area boasts an excellent climate for growing international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Hot summer days are freshened by brisk sea breezes and cool nighttime temperatures, ideal for fully ripened grapes.

The alluvial soil is unique in that it consists of two distinct types: terre brune ("dark earth", predominately loam and clay, with very little limestone or stone) and terre bianche ("white earth", primarily clay and sand, rich in limestone and filled with abundant stones and pebbles of different sizes).

It is in this region that wine icon Angelo Gaja, owner of the Gaja Winery, began a new winemaking venture — Ca'Marcanda. His aim was to transfer the experience of his Piemontese culture to the Maremma - to first acquire a thorough understanding of the potential of the different soil types and then to emphasize their specificity and uniqueness in the wines that are produced. The Maremma provides a perfect opportunity to apply this experience to growing international varieties. In 1996, along the road between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, Gaja began planting 150 acres of vineyards, primarily with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but also Cabernet Franc and Syrah.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
