Decanter Magazine Review
Piedmont legend Gaja's Tuscany outpost Ca' Marcanda produces a small range of wines using the region's main varieties. Promis is the estate's entry-level wine, a blend of Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Each variety is fermented and matured separately for 12 months in oak before blending and bottling. This has a delicious nose of crushed rock, fresh berries, herbs and barrel spices. In the mouth the ripe, concentrated red, black and blue fruits are super-soft, silky and inviting, while a subtle framework of grainy tannins and fresh acidity lend structure. Herbal touches appear on the mid-palate, while the long, fresh finish features bright red fruits and a touch of spice. An utterly gorgeous wine. Drinking window now-2025.
Light garnet. Bright and fruity with a jammy nose. A delightful wine that combines the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah with the austerity of Sangiovese. Balanced, almost musical, its a pleasure to drink from an early age and also has an aging potential of 5-8 years.
