Winemaker's Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

"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."
94 Points

"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. "

My wife loves expensive brunellos but I tried one of these on her and she loved it. About 1/3 the cost of a nice montalcino and 99% of the taste!! Great "everyday" wine.

Wonderfully smooth, full-bodied red. Lots of fruit flavor, while still finishing smooth.

I liked it at $25 and love it at $20. Flavorful, full bodied and good for many occasions. It's a nice well balanced red that I would recommend to anyone. I do recommend letting it breathe for 30-40 minutes at least. It opens up over time.

Marchese Lodovico Antinori discovered the property of Tenuta di Biserno near Bibbona, in the Alta Maremma area of Tuscany, in 1994, while looking for additional land to expand his Tenuta dell"Ornellaia vineyard. Given its proximity to Bolgheri, it is not surprising he was at first struck by the similarity in terroir. What he found in Bibbona, however, had so much potential, he was...
