The 2019 Promis shows a complex character and undeniable elegance. The nose is rich and concentrate, with blueberry, liquorice and cocoa hints. It starts fresh and then develops balsamic notes and scents of graphite. Then, it turns into a more mellow character with rhubarb and a menthol note. The palate is voluminous with fine-grained and silky tannins.
The Gaja tradition started in 1859 in Piedmont. Five generations of the Gaja family have nurtured and built on the dreams of the previous generation. In 1937 Giovanni Gaja took over the reins of the company and it was at this time the labels changed presenting the famous Gaja name first and foremost on the label as we see it today. Ca’Marcanda – Bolgheri is the birthplace of modern Italian wine – where new world meets old. A perfect home for 5th generation Gaja to continue to innovate.
