    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

    Intense ruby with flecks of purple. The nose is intensely fruity with a hint of spicy oak and licorice. The palate is balanced and harmonious, with the rich fruit being balanced by ripe, round tannins. Insoglio will gain in complexity as it matures in bottle.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This mid-weight, elegant wine offers up perfumed red fruits, kirsch, smoke, earthiness and grilled herbs in a ripe, harmonious style. The overall balance and refined finish are impeccable.

    I really liked the 2006 but the 2007 is not as good. Decanted for 30 minutes, has a good nose of dark fruit. On the palate it has a herbal taste and the finish is just too bitter.
