Deep garnet color. The wine opens with floral aromas of wild rose and violet, then it turns into a more earthy bouquet with hints of maritime pine, eucalyptus and roots. The palate is fresh and juicy, with notes of red and black fruits - raspberry, wild strawberry and mulberry. Creamy, smooth tannins. The finish is sapid with a smoky and spicy character.

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.
