Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis 2018
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
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.
Aromas of dark berries, licorice and sandalwood following through to medium to full body with firm tannins. A juicy and delicious finish.
The 2016 Promis checks in as a blend of Merlot, Syrah, and Sangiovese that spent a year in oak. Loads of ripe black cherries, earth, tobacco, and leather notes all give way to a medium to full-bodied red that has ripe tannins, notable elegance, and a charming, upfront, ready-to-go style.
