Tenuta di Biserno Campo di Sasso Insoglio del Cinghiale 2019
Insoglio has 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. The wine will gain in balance and complexity with further aging in the bottle. This wine pairs well with game dishes, roast pheasant or rich game stews. Slightly chilled, it is equally good in summer with picnics and barbecues. A medium-to full-bodied red with layers of blackberries, blueberries, sandalwood, dried geranium and licorice. It’s wonderfully polished and rich with smooth, velvety tannins. Lovely depth of fruit. Bold flavors of dark plum and blackberry surge through a smooth, velvety texture in this dynamic and finely knit wine. Dark spice notes enliven the rich fruit as the wine gains layers of fennel and tobacco. Delicious now, the wine has plenty of verve to improve over the next several years. From the Campo di Sasso vineyard in Bibbona (the village adjacent to Bolgheri along the Tuscan coast), the Tenuta di Biserno 2019 Insoglio del Cinghiale is an easy blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot that undergoes winemaking mostly in stainless steel with some brief oak. It opens to a bright ruby color and offers dried raspberry, cherry and wild plum. This wine is all about primary fruit intensity, and if fruity freshness is what you’re looking for, you get it here in spades. However with time, a hint of musky animal or leather does also appear, and a near-term drinking window is a safe bet. Pair this simple Tuscan red with a wood oven pizza margherita.
