Well.... I’m an idiot. I opened this way to early, but was so curious. It’s a bit closed at the moment (not surprisingly at its age), olive tapenade, dried herbs, plum, dusty minerality, chalk, vanilla, big tannins and noticeable alcohol. Again, my bad for not waiting, will be awesome.

Great blend of Sangiovese, Syrah and merlot. Blue and red fruits, rustic yet elegant with medium tannins and acidity. Will be coming back to this wine over and over.

Angelo Gaja, owner of Gaja Winery, began a new venture - Ca'Marcanda, Piedmontese term for “house of endless negotiations”-Blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah & 10% Sangiovese, aromas of berry fruits and sweet oak and floral notes. On the palate fresh red berry fruits with a smoky oak character. Fine tannins, lingering, ending with fruit and oak character. Nice! Tasting Sample!

A surprisingly easy-going sleeper that may still be on your favorite shelf, if you’re lucky. The Syrah and Merlot work in a wonderful harmony and hit the “Simple note” in all the right ways. A soft but rich approach follows a truly intriguing nose. The aroma seems to be spelled out by the Merlot, and the length of is follows along the lines of the Syrah. As it breathes and opens it really does reach to new levels- and I am genuinely impressed. While it cheap, the Promis brings something to the table that (I think) is unique. It’s a brilliant little blend that’s going to be winning hearts at a price point that Gaja, for the moment, is clearly and delightfully dipping into.

Beautiful sangio blend. Medium bodied, opens up quickly, perfect for a light lunch. Layers of red fruit. A delight.

Monday evening and tonight I have opened the 2017 Gaja Ca' Marcanda Promis Toscana. This is a blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese from Castagneto Carducci in Tuscany, Italy.

On the nose there is raspberry, strawberry, plum, there is a savory gamey component, baking spices, licorice, pepper, clay and earth.

On the palate I am getting cherry, raspberry, red currant, licorice, herbs, lavander, graphite and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + firm sandy tannins that has a long fresh red and black fruit finish. The week ahead looks like it is going to be a fantastic week and I am looking forward to it being full of wonderful fall beginnings. Have a great week, please be safe and stay healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Had this at a tasting a few years ago and grabbed a few bottles. Angelo Gaja, owner of Gaja Winery, began a new venture - Ca'Marcanda, Piedmontese term for “house of endless negotiations”-Blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah & 10% Sangiovese, Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and sweet oak and floral notes. On the palate fresh red berry fruits with a smoky oak character. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit and oak character. Aged well, still has room! Nice!
