Winemaker Notes

An intense and complex nose of black fruit followed by toasty spicy notes. The palate is elegant and balance with fine rounded tannins.

Pair with braised or roasted meats and hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

TP 97
Tasting Panel

Glossy and lush; supple, elegant, and rich with hints of earth and spice. Seamless and generous, it shows great finesse.

JS 95
James Suckling
Aromas of blueberry, fresh flower and walnut follow through to a full body, with super integrated tannins and a long, refined finish. Lovely, crafted red with class. This is a blend of cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Brothers Marchese Lodovico Antinori and Marchese Piero Antinori teamed up to create this 120-acre estate in the hills of Bibbona near the Tuscan coast. The gravelly sites on the upper hillsides favor cabernet franc, which shines through in leafy tobacco flavors and fine herbal tones. Merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot round out the blend, saturating the wine with flavors of dark chocolate, briny olives and black tea. It feels plush, rich and balanced, the fine tannins polished during 16 months in French oak barriques (about 60 percent new). It will gain complexity as those voluminous flavors come together in the cellar.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Compared to the other wines in this vertical tasting, the 2012 Biserno plays its cards closer to the chest. This vintage is linear, tight and ultimately less expressive when you really get down to it. The bouquet is characterized by its sharp directness. It emits quick pulses of blackberry, spice, smoke, leather and grilled herb. All the essential elements are there, and the aromas do very much deliver what you should expect of this important Tuscan blend of noble Bordeaux grapes. Yet, the volume is played at lower decibels in 2012 compared to the veritable chorus of exceptional harmonies played loud in 2013 and my favorite 2015 edition.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Coconut, black currant, toasted oak and grilled bell pepper lead the nose on this blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The polished, full-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, raspberry, licorice and espresso framed in silky tannins.

Tenuta di Biserno  Winery Video
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.

"One of the big developments is the release of two vintages of a new wine from Tenuta di Biserno. Biserno is the new family-owned winery of brothers Piero and Lodovico Antinori, located just outside the appellation of Bolgheri… I find the style of the property's wines already to be a fascinating combination of Ornellaia's and Sassicaia's, emphasizing the generosity of the former and the firmness and backbone of the latter."

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
