92 points James Button (Decanter): "Piedmont legend Gaja's Tuscany outpost Ca' Marcanda produces a small range of wines using the region's main varieties. Promis is the estate's entry-level wine, a blend of Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Each variety is fermented and matured separately for 12 months in oak before blending and bottling. This has a delicious nose of crushed rock, fresh berries, herbs and barrel spices. In the mouth the ripe, concentrated red, black and blue fruits are super-soft, silky and inviting, while a subtle framework of grainy tannins and fresh acidity lend structure. Herbal touches appear on the mid-palate, while the long, fresh finish features bright red fruits and a touch of spice. An utterly gorgeous wine. Drinking Window: 2020-2025. (Dec 2020)"
91 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Promis is a very pretty wine. Lifted, floral aromatics, silky tannins and mid-weight structure give it tons of immediacy and overall appeal. Hints of succulent red cherry, cinnamon, mint and leather linger effortlessly. Drink: 2020-2028. (Jan 2021)"
