"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). Light garnet in color, this wine features bright and fruity aromas with a jammy nose. A delightful wine that combines the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah with the austerity of Sangiovese." —winemaker

Blend: 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese
"Angelo Gaja always presents one of the most exciting tastings of the year. The 2013 Promis (Merlot, Syrah and a small part Sangiovese) reveals all the hallmarks of the excellent vintage. The wine offers a supple and smooth entry that is creamy and delicious. Spice, dark fruit, cherry, blackberry, tar, resin and cola come to attention. The tannins still show some attitude so I would recommend giving this wine a few more years of cellar aging. The intensity, depth and persistency promise many years of forward-looking cellar aging." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"A delicious red with lots of plum and blueberry aromas and flavors. Hints of cream and cedar. Full body, soft tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Very beautiful indeed. Drink or hold." —JamesSuckling.com
