Tenuta di Biserno Campo di Sasso Insoglio del Cinghiale 2019
Insoglio has 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. The wine will gain in balance and complexity with further aging in the bottle.
This wine pairs well with game dishes, roast pheasant or rich game stews. Slightly chilled, it is equally good in summer with picnics and barbecues.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A medium-to full-bodied red with layers of blackberries, blueberries, sandalwood, dried geranium and licorice. It’s wonderfully polished and rich with smooth, velvety tannins. Lovely depth of fruit.
Bold flavors of dark plum and blackberry surge through a smooth, velvety texture in this dynamic and finely knit wine. Dark spice notes enliven the rich fruit as the wine gains layers of fennel and tobacco. Delicious now, the wine has plenty of verve to improve over the next several years.
From the Campo di Sasso vineyard in Bibbona (the village adjacent to Bolgheri along the Tuscan coast), the Tenuta di Biserno 2019 Insoglio del Cinghiale is an easy blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot that undergoes winemaking mostly in stainless steel with some brief oak. It opens to a bright ruby color and offers dried raspberry, cherry and wild plum. This wine is all about primary fruit intensity, and if fruity freshness is what you're looking for, you get it here in spades. However with time, a hint of musky animal or leather does also appear, and a near-term drinking window is a safe bet. Pair this simple Tuscan red with a wood oven pizza margherita.
A blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, this lithe red has aromas of cassis, blue flower and oak-driven spice. It's medium bodied and smooth, featuring blueberry, blackberry and star anise alongside polished tannins.
Bright cherry, raspberry and floral flavors mark this succulent red. It's lively and firm, finishing with a hint of wild scrub and black pepper. Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
"One of the big developments is the release of two vintages of a new wine from Tenuta di Biserno. Biserno is the new family-owned winery of brothers Piero and Lodovico Antinori, located just outside the appellation of Bolgheri…
I find the style of the property's wines already to be a fascinating combination of Ornellaia's and Sassicaia's, emphasizing the generosity of the former and the firmness and backbone of the latter."

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.
A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
