Intense, bright ruby hues. The nose opens with a clear-cut aroma of ripe soft fruit, which is perfectly offset by spicy notes and continues with a hint of eucalyptus as it evolves in the glass. The wine has excellent balance, with fine, ripe tannins and fruit, providing a harmonious mid-palate and elegant, long finish.
35% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Petit Verdot
Only 300 cases imported.
"Medium ruby hue. Pauillac-like aromas of black currant, citrus peel and graphite are perfectly charming and show no herbaceousness. Well-integrated flavors of blackberry, dried herbs and spicy cedar offer hints of mocha. Elegant close.

"This is very classy on the nose, with subtle aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Refined and very pretty."
"This Bordeaux-inspired blend (2005 is the second vintage made) represents the collaborative effort of Lodovico Antinori and Michel Rolland. You’ll get clear berry fruit, green peppercorn, dried herbs and smoky oak tones. The estate’s flagship wine, Biserno, will be released later this year, and expect great things from this duo in years to come as the estate matures."
"The top of the line 2005 Il Pino di Biserno is simply beautiful. It possesses outstanding clarity in its aromatics and ripe fruit. Notes of smoke, licorice and tar dance on the palate as this sexy wine continues to reveal new shades of its personality with every taste. The oak needs some time to come together, but this is an elegant, refined wine in every way. Il Pino di Biserno is a cuvee of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2023.
Tenuta di Biserno is the new project being headed by brothers Lodovico and Piero Antinori.Winemaking is overseen by Helena Lindberg with the consulting services of Michel Rolland.These are beautiful wines from an estate that is on the rise."
