Insoglio del Cinghiale is the foundation wine of Tenuta di Biserno. Its name was inspired by one of the well-known works of Eugenio Cecconi, "La caccia al cinghiale nel padule di Burano," which means, "the boar shooting in the Burano marsh." Cecconi, a celebrated Italian post-impressionist, was a personal friend of Lodovico Antinori's grandfather, Piero Antinori. Cinghiale is especially meaningful to Tuscans because it has been a staple in the Tuscan diet for centuries, and, not surprisingly, a wonderful match for the rich, robust taste of Insoglio del Cinghiale.
Concentrated ruby color with purple hues. The nose is intensely fruity with a hint of spicy oak. The palate is balanced and harmonious, with rich fruit and a good backbone of tannins. Insoglio del Cinghiale will gain in complexity as it matures in bottle.
Varietal Composition: 35% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
"Medium crimson hue. Intensely brambly aromas of raspberry and pencil shavings. Lovely mouth-feel frames juicy flavors of strawberry and earth; perfect balance. Clean, tart finish."
The Wine News
"The 2006 Insoglio del Cinghiale possesses inviting, super-ripe aromatics that lead to notes of earthiness, smoke, black pepper and ripe dark fruit that develop in the glass. This supple, plump red is a great example of the bold, racy wines that were made in Tuscany in the 2006 vintage. Insoglio del Cinghiale is a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012.

What he found in Bibbona, however, had so much potential, he was...Read More About Tenuta di Biserno
