Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
Notes from the Winemaker:
The proprietary name Promis (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. The grapes are grown in terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist 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. Promis is balanced and approachable in its youth with considerable aging potential (5-8 years).

Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - James Suckling:
"An extremely floral and almost pinot-noir-like wine with fresh rose petals, wild strawberries and red cherries. Medium to full body, fine tannins, a pretty line of acidity and a succulent finish. Drink now." (Aug 2017)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese are the backbone of the 2015 Promis. Compared to the Bolgheri Rosso Magari, this wine delivers a slightly easier approach with a savory flavor profile. Dried berries and cassis are followed by leather, tobacco and a touch of black tar. This wine is a hair more advanced in terms of its evolution too. The finish offers a moment of austerity with smoky end notes." - Monica Larner (Oct 2017)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"There is purity to the cherry and black currant fruit, laid out on a velvety texture, with hints of cedar, sandalwood and green olive. Harmonious, long and ready to enjoy. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2024. 6,250 cases made." - BS (Mar 2018)

90 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2015 Promis is an attractive, entry-level wine from Gaja's Ca' Marcanda estate. Drink this mid-weight, perfumed red over the next few years. Lifted floral notes add to the wine's gracious, delicate feel. Although not a big wine, the 2015 is very finessed and quite classy." (Apr 2018)
