Overview of the Wine
Marchese Lodovico Antinori discovered the property of Tenuta di Biserno near Bibbona, in the Alta Maremma area of Tuscany, in 1994, while looking for additional land to expand his Tenuta dell’Ornellaia vineyard. Given its proximity to Bolgheri, it is not surprising he was at first struck by the similarity in terroir. What he found in Bibbona, however, had so much potential, he was inspired to develop a quite different plan. With more hills and stones than nearby Bolgheri, this land appeared to be ideally suited to produce a new and different wine. In 2001 Lodovico and his brother, Piero, established Tenuta di Biserno as an elite wine estate.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red colored wine. The bouquet features dark fruits such as plums and blackberries, hints of freshly- ground roast coffee, notes of cloves and brushwood. Delicious on the palate, with a balance of thick and elegant tannins and a long finish.
91 Points - Wine Spectator
Bright, offering blackberry, raspberry, bacon and black pepper flavors. Firm and balanced, with a chalky feel on the finish.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The entry-level Tenuta di Biserno 2020 Insoglio del Cinghiale is rounded and soft with ripe fruit and sweet cherry flavors. This blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot has background notes of spice and baked biscuit. There is a milky tone as well that recalls the hot growing season.
