Tenuta di Biserno

Insoglio del Cinghiale Toscana IGT 2017 play

Region: Italy / Bibbona
Grapes: Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine is from a nearby estate, Tenuta Campo di Sasso, comprised of 3 plots of 46 hectares, situated south west of Biserno and close to the town of Bibbona. The soils are very different from the ones of Biserno, made up of mostly sand and a little clay. The first vintage was in 2003 - a famously hot summer, which helped both to produce a great Syrah and to put the wine on the map. The wine is made from 32% Syrah and the remainder is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

harvest note

2017 was a warm and dry year for the region, from little rainfall during winter to a summer with insignificant scattered millimetres of rain during the four-month period from early May to early September.It was a year of adverse weather phenomena in many parts of Europe with frost, hail storms and torrential rain, and many wine regions suffered a reduction in production volume. Tenuta di Biserno and Tenuta Campo di Sasso were fortunate in the sense that apart from the dry and warm to hot conditions our vineyards escaped all damaging weather events.

tasting note

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.

food pairing

Pairs well with game dishes, roast pheasant or rich game stews. Slightly chilled, it is equally good in summer with picnics and barbecues.

"Biserno is unique - a dream for any winemaker. Reuniting the names Lodovico and Piero, the namesakes of the original founders of the Antinori Company, I am happy and honored to realize my last winemaking project."
