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.

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.
Bright, evoking ripe cherry, blackberry, black currant and spice flavors, this red is supported by acidity and firm tannins. Comes together on the finish, leaving a chalky, minerally aftertaste. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2024.óB.S.
