Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis 2012
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.
