Promis, from the Latin abbreviation, promissio, meaning promise truly lives up to its name. The grapes are grown in the terre brune (rich, dark soils) of the Ca'Marcanda vineyard. The soil consists 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.

Color: Light garnet
Aroma: Bright and fruity with a jammy nose.
Taste: 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.

Reviews:

"Dark in color. Very focused and precise on the nose, with a full body, wonderfully silky tannins and a fruity, bright aftertaste. Lively and delicious already. The best Promis ever. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best after 2010. 20,000 cases made. –JS" -Rated 90, Wine Spectator

"The 2006 Promis (Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese) is a delicious, full-bodied red loaded with ripe fruit, spices, leather and grilled herbs. The wine offers terrific density and richness in an engaging, accessible style with tons of balance and sheer class. This is a gorgeous effort from Angelo Gaja and his team in Bolgheri. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014. Angelo Gaja’s wines from his sprawling property in Maremma continue to improve with each passing vintage." -Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
