Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis 2012


SKU 30131


The proprietary name Promis (proh-MEESS) was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfillment, and hope. The promise of quality and the reward of diligence and excellence. The grapes are grown in terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist primarily of loam and clay. The climate- hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights- is ideal for the grapes grown here. Promis is balanced and approachable in its youth with considerable aging potential (5-8 years).

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Promis IGT (Merlot, Syrah and a smaller component of Sangiovese) does indeed deliver on its promise of Gaja-inspired winemaking excellence. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with nicely balanced aromas of blackberry, red cherry and kirsch. Soft oak contours of tobacco and dark chocolate widen the wine's aromatic footprint. This is a contemplative and well-executed effort.
