We have only offered the wines from Campo di Sasso a few times, but we have another incredible value from this Tuscan address today. Tenuta Campo di Sasso is located in the western side of Maremma, near Bibbona. Formed by three different plots of vineyards along the road that joins Bibbona to Bolgheri, the vines of this estate are at a lower altitude, which means a sandier terroir and a warmer climate. These are ideal growing for Syrah, which accounts for about 30% of the blend, but also Cabernet (43%), Merlot (25%), and Petit Verdot (2%).
The 2021 Campo di Sasso Insoglio del Cinghiale Toscana IGT is a lovely wine that captures the capability of the use of Bordelaise varietals in Tuscany at a very affordable price. It shows the aromatics of ripe cherries, blackberries, and plums intertwined with hints of Mediterranean herbs and some minerals. The palate echos the intense fruit of berries, currants, and a touch of licorice before a long, satisfying finish. The 2021 Campo di Sasso Insoglio del Cinghiale Toscana IGT is a true testament to the quality and artistry of Tuscan winemaking, making it an excellent choice for wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike looking for red wine value. We have friendly pricing on this one today, and if you are looking for nice red to have on hand at home for a house pour, entertaining this holiday, or enjoy Tuscan blends, this is one to consider and is highly recommended.
Jebdunnuck.com (Audrey Frick) 92 points! "The 2021 Insoglio del Cinghale is rich with crushed lavender, purple plum, mocha, and black pepper and plush and compelling with its aromatics. Ful-bodied, it is ripe with dark black cherry fruit, turned earth, and a clean lift off the finish. There are well integrated tannins and has a pleasing mineral touch. The former wine director in me would jump on this as a fantastic wine by the glass option, as it casts a large net of appeal and checks a lot of boxes for the price. Drink 2023-2030.<!--more-->Located just to the north of Bolgheri, in the commune of Bibbona, the Tenuta di Biserno estate was founded in 2001 by Lodovico and Piero Antinori. The founding winemaker, Helena Lindberg, remains at the helm of production today. (Drink between 2023-2030)"
