2019 Promis comprises 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese.

The grapes are grown in the terre brune (rich, dark soils) of Bolgheri and in the neighbouring area of Bibbona. Aged in slightly used barriques for 12 months followed by several months of bottle aging.

The 2019 Promis shows a complex character and undeniable elegance. The nose is rich and concentrate, with blueberry, licorice and cocoa hints. It starts fresh and then develops balsamic notes and scents of graphite. Then, it turns into a more mellow character with rhubarb and a menthol note. The palate is voluminous with fine-grained and silky tannins.

Promis represents the combination of grapes from Gaja’s two Tuscan estates – Merlot and Syrah from Ca’Marcanda and Sangiovese from Pieve Santa Restituta. The three varieties are fermented separately and then blended in January or February after harvest. Aged for 18 months in slightly used barriques, followed by several months of bottle aging.

From the 2021 vintage which was very dry but moderately cool resulting in wines with great colour, concentration and acidity. A blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese. The Promis is sourced from vineyards across Bolgheri and Bibbona with the majority in Bibbona on only dark soils rich in clay. The three varieties are fermented cool separately over 15 days. All varieties retain 15-20% whole bunch in the ferment and are then aged in a mixture of Tonneau and Barrique. The name Promis, derived from the Italian word for promise is in reference to the Gaja family’s commitment to bringing and producing world class wines from the region.
