Italy → Tuscany → Maremma
esbrown reviewed Gaja Ca Marcanda Promis Toscana IGT 2002 on July 31, 2005
An interesting effort from the Crown Prince of Italian wine, Angelo Gaja. Lots of high-toned red fruit and white pepper on the nose, with noticeable acidity and a touch of saddle leather. Brett, maybe? Similar on the palate with gobs of black cherries, leather, savory herb and pepper, balanced by medium tannins and a little more acidity than was expected. Good, but it seemed to lack a richness that is often found in the wines of Maremma.
