Intense ruby with hints of purple. The nose is of vibrant cherry and blackberry fruit and floral notes. Full and fruity on the palate with well-balanced smooth tannins. It can be a little closed to start but then opens up beautifully in the glass.
The 2009 Insoglio del Cinghiale is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive red fruit, silky tannins and exceptional overall balance. Hints of mocha, espresso, spices and licorice add mid-palate sweetness and considerable complexity. This is a terrific effort and one of the finest wines being made in Bolgheri in its price range. The 2009 Insoglio is 32% Syrah, 31% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, vinified and aged predominantly in steel, with 20% French oak during the malos and 40% French oak for aging. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
