The 2008 Insoglio del Cinghiale emerges from the glass with rather assertive aromatics including grilled herbs blackberry jam smoke and scorched earth. Plums melt into wild cherries and an assortment of other dark fruit... The 2008 Insoglio del Cinghiale emerges from the glass with rather assertive aromatics including grilled herbs blackberry jam smoke and scorched earth. Plums melt into wild cherries and an assortment of other dark fruit in this plump juicy red. Some of the intensity of the fruit tapers off on the mid-palate leading to a finish that is a touch slender. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.

Lovely blueberry aromas with hints of meat follow through to a full body. Offers soft and silky tannins as well as notes of currant bush and hints of fresh herbs. Better than 2007. Best from 2011 through 2016. 17300 cases... Lovely blueberry aromas with hints of meat follow through to a full body.

A dark brooding purple hue for this Bolgheri blend of Syrah Merlot Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Exotic spices crushed blackberries plums and a whif of sauvage emerge on the nose while herbs and succulent cassis sing... A dark brooding purple hue for this Bolgheri blend of Syrah Merlot Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Exotic spices crushed blackberries plums and a whif of sauvage emerge on the nose while herbs and succulent cassis sing on the mid-palate. The finish is firm and angular with medium-full tannins that will allow this wine to develop nicely over the course of 2-3 years. This is a tremendous effort and great followup to the 2007 vintage which sold like gangbusters at half the price of many Southern Tuscan IGT Blends!
