*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Color: Deep garnet color Aroma: The nose is rich with notes of licorice, sage and thyme. Its specific Mediterranean character is balanced with intense aromas of well-ripe small dark berries. Taste: A medium bodied wine with silky tannins and refreshing acidity. It opens with sweet and juicy notes of blackberry and black cherry, and then it ends with a pleasant salty and savory hint.
Wine AdvocateThere is a lovely delicateness and softness to the 2016 Promis. The IGT appellation used here reflects fruit (a blend of Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese) sourced from Bibbona. The Promis has always seen Merlot in a leading role. This is a full and complete wine with nice roundness and bright freshness on the close. It is the most immediate and food friendly of these offerings from Ca'Marcanda.
Wine SpectatorBlack currant, blackberry, herb, mineral and tobacco notes ply this firm, intense and sinewy red. The taut profile and compact structure persist on the long finish. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2030. 3,400 cases imported
James SucklingAromas of dark berries, licorice and sandalwood following through to medium to full body with firm tannins. A juicy and delicious finish. Drink in 2019.
Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Promis (pronounced proh-MEESS) is a blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, and 10% Sangiovese that were fermented separately and aged in barrel, with blending occurring just a few months before bottling. It offers a juicy, charming style in its black cherry and blackberry fruits as well as outstanding notes of spice, earth, and tobacco. This elegant, medium-bodied beauty has nicely integrated acidity, ultra-fine tannins, and a silky, mid-weight yet just incredibly charming style that's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years or so.
