The proprietary name Promis (pronounced proh-MEESS) was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfilment, and hope. The promise of quality and the reward of diligence and excellence. The grapes are grown in the terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist primarily of loam and clay.  The 2016 was a fulfilling vintage. Embracing, structured, voluptuous, and lively.

The 2016 winter and springtime have been both marked by abundant and frequent rainfalls, thus creating the ideal water reserves for the growing season. The 2016 summer turned out to be particularly dry. However, thanks to the rainy spring and the accurate mulching the vines did not suffer the drought. Strong diurnal temperature exchanges during the ripening period, with picks of 12-15 °C, allowed a slow and even maturation of the grapes. Due to the peculiar dryness of the season, the diseases pressure in the vineyard has been minimal, allowing the harvest of extremely healthy grapes. The harvest begun on 29 August with Merlot and ended with Syrah on September 11.

The climate – hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights – is ideal for the grapes grown here.  Promis offers the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah, complemented by the vibrant structure of Sangiovese, Tuscany’s emblematic grape. This wine drinks well at an early age.
