Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis 2012 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
The 2012 Promis does indeed deliver on its promise of Gaja-inspired wine making 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 wines aromatic footprint. This is a contemplative and well-executed effort.
Angelo Gajas CaMarcanda estate has hit its stride with this latest set of wines. His management of the 2011 heat is impressive, resulting in wines with power and finesse. CaMarcanda never seems to get the attention it deserves, and the wines are indeed pricey. Nonetheless, they are among the finest expressions on the Tuscan coast. October 2014. -Monica Larner
55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese. The proprietary name Promis (pronounced 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. -Winery
