Grape varieties : 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10%Sangiovese.
The Promis 2015 displays a deep garnet colour.
The nose is rich with notes of roots, liquorice, mallow, sage and thyme. Its specific
Mediterranean character is mellowed by intense aromas of well ripe small dark
berries. In the palate is a medium bodied wine with silky tannins and refreshing
acidity, it opens with sweet and juicy notes of blackberry and black cherry, and then it
ends with a pleasant salty and savoury hint.
Winemaking method :
The three varieties ferment and macerate separately for around 15 days. After 12
months of ageing in oak, they are blended and then aged for several months in the
bottle before release.
The winter in 2015 has been a cold one followed by a rainy spring, thus providing the
appropriate amount of water reserves to the soil and also decisively hampering the
diseases pressure in the vineyards. The summer in 2015 started with a positive and
balanced situation in the vineyard, which has been crucial to face the very high
temperatures of July and August. Very little selection has been necessary in the
vineyard, and the 2015 grapes entering the cellar were clean and healthy. The
fermentations have carried out regularly and without arrests, resulting in medium-to-
high acidity wines with remarkable fresh aromas. The harvest began with Merlot on
August 28 and ended with Sangiovese on September 19.
