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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

It is very typical of a #supertuscan wine = deep ruby color, medium(+) aromas and flavours of black cherry, red and black plum and hints of cassis and mint with toasty undertones. The tannins need a little polishing. I believe it needs to age.

Yeah. Delicious wine. Nice body. Nice soul. Can’t say more. Just nice everything.

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.

Vintage 2012 / classic classy smell, rather smooth drinking with clearly quality #sangiovese #gaja

Out with son and wife and son buying dinner for father’s day - salute you son and so proud of you - as such the wine was a little better than I expected - all smiles

Rich blackberry on nose. Hint of savory herbs: thyme. Ripe black cherry on palate, then jammy, balanced by salinity. Rich with smooth tannins, long finish.

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.

There's a positive herbaceous addition to the cassis, cherries and anise aromas, complemented by clever oak spice. Medium-bodied, fresh and elegant, this youthfully fruit-forward edition lacks med-palate weight but this is easily forgotten thanks to its pretty finish.
