Insoglio del Cinghiale
This wine is from a nearby, quite separate estate, Tenuta Campo di Sasso, comprending 3 plots of 46 hectars has situated in south west of Biserno, 7 chilometres and close to the town of Bibbona. The soils here are very different from the ones of Biserno, most sandy with very good drainage, and little clay. The first vintage here, was 2003, a famously hot summer, which helped both to produce a great Syrah and to put the wine on the map. The debut vintage created a great number of fans. As we celebrate 12 years of production, 2015 offered us another fantastic, suitable celebratory year. Insoglio del Cinghiale makes for a very good, well-balanced wine, true to the region, at an accessible price. It is made from 32% Syrah and the remaining part is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. In Insoglio del Cinghiale we have a very fleshy wine, from the distinctive Upper Maremma terroir. The peppery characteristics coming from the Syrah makes it the ideal accompaniment to game dishes, such as the local wild boar cinghiale (after which it is named), roast pheasant or rich game stews. Slightly chilled, it is equally good in summer with picnics and barbecues.
