|Gaja Ca'Marcanda "Promis" 2010|
The grapes are sourced from vineyards lying in the terre brune, or brown soil of the 250-acre estate in the Maremma region of Tuscany, where the mineral content yields wines with a more pronounced tannic structure and character. Promis is a medium bodied, fruit-forward wine with aging potential but also very drinkable in youth.
It exhibits the supple and round flavors of Merlot along with a delicate hint of crushed black pepper you expect from Syrah, with the dried fruit on the finish characteristic of Sangiovese. It’s a perfect wine to accompany those New Year’s resolutions …
