An absolute must try for any lover of Super Tuscans, Biserno's Insoglio is a must try. Predominantly made from Syrah, you get all the black pepper and black fruit your Syrah loving heart desires, framed out with that rustic savory structure that just screams Italy
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 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.
