The Gaja Winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by five generations of the Gaja family. In 1996 Gaja acquired a second property in Tuscany, Ca'Marcanda, located in Bolgheri. From those Bolgheri vineyards comes Promis which was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfillment, and hope.
A big, very rich Gaja style wine. Great balance, vibrant acidity, refined tannins. loads of structure, with medium plus body. Any negative implications from the hot 2017 growing conditions have been absolutely eliminated and worked through. The palate is rich with flavors of cassis, blackberry, cherry, black currant, tobacco, oak, leather, and wild herbs then evolves to leafy and cedary notes. The finish is long with spicy and earthy notes. Cries out for a hearty dish such as Coniglio alla Cacciatora.
