Gaja Ca' Marcanda Promis 2011

Gaja Ca' Marcanda Promis 750ml 2011     
Sku: 16249

Promis, from the Latin abbreviation, promissio, meaning promise truly lives up to its name. The grapes are grown in the terre brune (rich, dark soils) of the Ca'Marcanda vineyard. The soil consists 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.

Rating
The 2011 Promis (55% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese) is darkly concentrated with thick tones of black tar, espresso, candied cherry, clove, rum cake and bitter chocolate. Although it feels broad and large in the mouth, the wine also shows enormous elegance and focus. That inner opulence is channeled into tight, sharp pulses that impact the palate with grace and poise. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2024. Angelo Gaja oozes enthusiasm for all his wine endeavors. But he shows a special degree of love and passion when it comes to his estate in Bolgheri, Ca’ Marcanda. As I write this introduction, I am sifting through my email inbox where Angelo has deposited a slew of areal photographs of his beloved estate, each one adding to a progressive timeline of the construction and olive tree landscaping completed over the past decade. Inaugurated in 2000, the winery sits on flatland but is almost completely hidden under a layer of earth. Unlike his historic cellars in Barbaresco that represents a confluence of ideals spanning many generations, Ca’ Marcanda is a utopian vision of winemaking contemplated and realized solely by Angelo.
