This is our founding wine. The original label, featuring a picture of a wild boar and the name “insoglio”, the place where this animal goes to root and roll around, expresses the soul and culture of the Maremma. Exceptionally fruity, fine, linear and versatile.

Harvest Note
A moderate year with more consistent rainfall in spring, which made temperatures slightly cooler than average. Then things warmed up at the beginning of June and the vines blossomed, albeit slightly later than usual. The summer recorded average temperatures with good fluctuations between day and night. It can be considered a good vintage.
Tasting Note
Medium-deep purplish red; floral bouquet of violets and fresh tobacco with vibrant fruity sensations of cherry and blackberry. Decisive and enveloping entry on the palate, ripe and well-defined tannins, fresh acidic vein, energetic finish.

About the Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.
Merlot
Merlot makes plump, succulent wines to drink young or opulently massive wines for aging. Has silky, blackberry and currant fruit, with spice, earth, tobacco and chocolate notes, and soft tannins.
Petit Verdot
Petit Verdot makes a dark, firmly structured, tannic wine with superbly balancing acidity, and fresh, full flavors and aromas of spice, pepper and black fruits with notes of violets.
Syrah
Syrah has seductively dense, rich, chewy black berry aromas and flavors, with notes of tar, wood smoke, bacon, leather, chocolate, and sometimes violets. The tannins are firm yet elegant.
