2010 Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis Toscana IGT$37.95 -- 2010 Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis Toscana IGT
Light garnet. Bright and fruity with a jammy nose. A delightful wine that combines the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah with the austerity of Sangiovese. Balanced, almost musical, its a pleasure to drink from an early age and also has an aging potential of 5-8 years.
The Ca'Marcanda estate is located in the famous Bolgheri district in the commune of Castagneto Carducci. Ca'Marcanda is the Piedmontese term for "house of endless negotiations," and it refers to the many hours that Angelo Gaja spent convincing the property's previous owners to sell the estate to him. The grapes for Promis 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 that grow at the Ca'Marcanda estate.
