Associated with “heavy hitters,” like Sassicaia, Masseto, & Messorio, Bolgheri is a playground for international varietals. The style is typecasted as flashy, big wines powered by fruit, alcohol, and tannin, but Bolgheri’s greatest feature cannot be measured. Unlike places like Montalcino and Chianti Classico, Bolgheri is at the doorstep of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It enjoys, on average, a cooler climate than its inland neighbors with an extravaganza of soils, from fossilized marine sediments to rich clays and flinty gravels. Whether it’s Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah, the wines share a unique salty profile reminiscent of dark green olives or tinned anchovies (yum!)

A blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, and Syrah, Ca’Marcanda’s Promis, bottles-up everything I’ve learned to love about Bolgheri. The 2021 vintage was oppressively dry, yet moderately cool, resulting in a wine with well-knitted tannins, extensive fruits, and a dreamy salt-lick acidity. In the glass, the wine spirals with dark strawberries, poached plums, olives, lavender, and wild rosemary. Perfectly juicy without being overly fruity, Promis is a delicious introduction to one of the world's finest terroirs. ~Allegra A
