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.
Robert ParkerThe 2014 Promis (Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese) shows the signs of the more difficult vintage with lower intensity and less depth compared to the 2013 and other vintages before it. There is a big silver lining that comes, thanks to the wine’s fresh acidity and bright primary fruit profile. Promis is a pleasure to drink now and that’s exactly how it should be consumed. It’s near-term beauty from a more challenging vintage to pair with ragu sauce and your favorite pasta dish.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of underbrush, cut grass, Mediterranean scrub, red currant and spice take center stage along with a hint of menthol. The soft approachable palate offers blackberry, black currant, star anise, vanilla and white pepper alongside bright acidity and supple tannins.
