Winemaker’s Notes

Luminous ruby color. Forest berries, spices, leather, moist earth and dried plum, layered in the aroma. Soft, round taste, well-balanced acidity and clean and persistent aftertaste. Very pleasing, and ready to drink.

Pair with flavorful first-course dishes, such as pasta, polenta, risotto, or with cheese and red meats.

Critical Acclaim

“Delicate floral nose with an earthy, slightly peaty background. Natural but very precise palate, with fine tannins and a concentrated, bone-dry finish which needs a little time to open up. ”

Blend:  55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese

     The proprietary name Promis (proh-MEESS) was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfillment, and hope. The promise of quality and the reward of diligence and excellence. The grapes are grown in terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist primarily of loam and clay. The climate- hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights- is ideal for the grapes grown here. Promis is balanced and approachable in its youth with considerable aging potential (5-8 years).
     “The 2011 Promis (55% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese) is darkly concentrated with thick tones of black tar, espresso, candied cherry, clove, rum cake and bitter chocolate. Although it feels broad and large in the mouth, the wine also shows enormous elegance and focus. That inner opulence is channeled into tight, sharp pulses that impact the palate with grace and poise.”

     “Bright, evoking ripe cherry, blackberry, black currant and spice flavors, this red is supported by acidity and firm tannins. Comes together on the finish, leaving a chalky, minerally aftertaste. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2024.”

WA 95 (8/2013): The 2010 Siepi is a monumental wine with towering intensity and opulent aromas of spice, leather and chocolate covered cherry. The texture of this hearty 50-50 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot is infinitely soft and supple. There are many big-boned wines from Italy that can compare to Siepi, but ultimately this wine is distinguished by its own, unique personality. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
JS 94 (2/2014): Very ripe wine with dried-berry and dark-chocolate character. Full body, full, ripe tannins and a juicy finish. It goes on for minutes. Better in 2016.

AG 94 (9/2014): The 2010 Siepi hasn’t budged much since last year. Freshly cut flowers, dark red stone fruits, tobacco, leather and wild flowers form an attractive fabric in a relatively weightless, silky Siepi.

winemaker’s notes:
Deep, intense ruby in color, this is a sumptuous, elegant blend fully expressing the land it hails from. The bouquet recalls ripe red fruit and blackberries, with notes of Mediterranean vegetation and eucalyptus and a subtle nuance of baked bell peppers from the component varieties. Structured, velvet-textured and complex on the palate, its rich, layered flavors and roundness are sustained by a vibrant, vivid freshness and sweet, well balanced, perfectly integrated tannins even at this early stage. A very consistent, very long finish evokes the lingering aromas of the bouquet.

critical acclaim:
“The 2009 Orma is gorgeous. Espresso, mocha, sweet red cherries, grilled herbs and plums wrap around the palate in this sensual wine from the Tuscan coast. The 2009 doesn’t quite have the exuberance or sexiness of 2007 or 2008, but it comes very close. Firm tannins frame a vibrant, energetic finish layered with graphite, smoke and mocha. This is a very beautiful wine from Antonio Moretti and long-time consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini.”

“Fully saturated ruby-purple. Sexy aromas of ripe dark plum, Asian spices, licorice and cocoa powder, with a floral quality adding lift and freshness. At once suave and penetrating, with very good energy and definition to the flavors of sweet red cherry, dark plum, mocha and fresh herbs. In a distinctly ripe style, but with a vibrant, long finish thanks to harmonious acidity. The sweet, broad tannins show a distinct chocolatey ripeness.”

winemaker’s notes:The wine has a deep, ruby-red color and intense, complex aromas of red fruits and spices, with toasty oak notes. On the palate, the wine has a silky texture, great finesse and profound flavors framed by noble, velvety tannins. Though impressive now, this wine will benefit from aging.

critical acclaim:
“Black licorice, cola and cherry liqueur open the nose and segue to black currant and crème de cassis aromas, then forest floor, bramble and Spanish cedar. This wine is linear, crisp and tight on the palate, with firm tannins. Give the wine five more years to soften.”
