A fruity lifted nose with notes of dark fruit, blackberries, plums and a hint of spice. The wine is medium weight with a youthful freshness and balance, fine rounded tannins and a smooth finish.
Insoglio del Cinghiale’s name was inspired by the famous painting by Eugenio Cecconi, “La caccia al cinghiale nel padule di Burano,” which means, “the boar shooting in the Burano marsh.” Cecconi, a celebrated Italian post-impressionist, was a personal friend of Lodovico Antinori’s grandfather, Piero Antinori. Cinghiale is especially meaningful in Tuscany because it has been a staple in the Tuscan diet for centuries, and, not surprisingly, it is a wonderful match for this wine’s rich, robust taste.
