      Tasting Notes
      Tenuta di Biserno, Insoglio del Cinghiale 2017, 75cl

      Insoglio del Cinghiale is our foundation wine. A supple and early maturing wine, Insoglio is a distinctive and distinguished introduction to our project.

      Campo di Sasso is formed by three different plots of vineyards west of the road that joins Bibbona to Bolgheri on the lower elevation, which means the land is more sandy and the climate is warmer during the summer months. These conditions are ideal for growing Syrah, which accounts for 32% of the blend of Insoglio del Cinghiale.

      Insoglio del Cinghiale makes for a very good, well-balanced wine, true to the region, at an accessible price. It is made from 32% Syrah and the remaining part is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. In Insoglio del Cinghiale we have a very fleshy wine, from the distinctive Upper Maremma terroir. The peppery characteristics coming from the Syrah make it the ideal accompaniment to game dishes, such as the local wild boar cinghiale (after which it is named), roast pheasant or rich game stews. Slightly chilled, it is equally good in summer with picnics and barbecues.

      A medium intense nose of dark fruits, blackberries, some floral notes and a hint of spicy oak in the background. A light to medium rich body with a fine structure and balance. It is a very pleasant and drinkable wine at release in September 2018 but will gain in balance and complexity with a further few months in bottle.

      "Gorgeous brambleberries, roasted herbs and soaked blueberries show on the nose and follow through to a full body with ripe tannins and a fruit filled finish. Spicy, too. A blend of syrah, cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot. Drink now.
      92 points."
