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. The grapes are grown in Bolgheri and in the neighboring area of Bibbona planted on the terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist primarily of lime and clay. The climate – hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights – is ideal for the grapes grown here.
Bright and deep garnet color. The nose is rich and concentrated with hints of blueberries, licorice and cocoa. The palate is fresh and juicy. Balsamic and appealing scents of graphite lead to mellow notes of rhubarb. Fine-grained and silky tannins. the 2018 Promis perfectly mirrors the Mediterranean scrubland of which it is surrounded.
Blend: 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese
