Insoglio del Cinghiale is the foundation wine of the Tenuta di Biserno estate. Insoglio is a supple and early maturing wine and a very distinctive and distinguished introduction to Tenuta di Biserno.

Classification: Indicazione Geografica Tipica di Toscana

Grapes: 32% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot

Vineyards: Grapes are taken from 3 vineyards: Vigna Fonit Intarlate, Vigna San Giovanni and Vigna Le Vallette. Soil type is partly clay, partly Bolgheri conglomerate. Vines are 3-7years old. Training is Cordonne Speronato.

Harvest: September. All harvesting is done by hand into 15kg crates.

Vinification: Grapes are strictly sorted on a vibrating belt at the cellar. They are then destemmed and soft crushed. Fermentation takes place for 21 days at 28°C. 10% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in oak barrels and the remainder in stainless steel.

Ageing: 40% of the wine is aged for 4 months in new and second use French oak barriques.

Alcohol: 14%

TASTING NOTE: Intense ruby with flecks of purple. The nose is of vibrant blackberry fruit with a subtle hint of oak. 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.
