Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red. Complex nose with scents of blackberries, freshly ground coffee and licorice. The palate has an elegant structure with fine grained tannins, balanced acidity and a mineral feel on the lengthy finish. Pair with braised or roasted meats and hard cheeses.

JS 97
James Suckling

This has a beautifully polished nose of blueberry, plum, walnut husk, cocoa, roasted coffee bean, praline and vanilla. It’s full-bodied and concentrated with ripe, velvety tannins. Lovely depth and focus. Superb. One of the best in a long time. Drink from 2023.

D 96
The 2017 vintage was warm and dry, yet not as much as 2003. 'In the vineyards there was not high vine stress as in 2012,' says winemaker Helena Lindberg, 'because the entire growing season was hot and thus the vineyards were adjusted to the heat'. Estery and youthful on the nose with a melted butter aroma, this has restrained bramble fruits in the mouth followed by plenty of clove and blond tobacco notes. It's mouth-filling and super-extracted on the mid-palate, pushed by almost firm acidity yet not without elegance on the finish. Drinking Window 2022 - 2037
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Tenuta di Biserno 2017 Biserno is hushed at first, almost sottovoce, and it builds its intensity carefully and slowly one little decibel at a time. The aromas expand, the acidity brightens and the tannins flesh out as the wine opens in the glass. These elements come together with narrowing focus. This is a seamless and incredibly smooth blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot that offers a full gamut of dark fruit, spice and cured tobacco. Given ample time to open, the generosity of the bouquet is not necessarily matched by the mouthfeel that ultimately feels a bit pinched or short on the close. This is a common characteristic I saw in many of the other blended Tuscan reds made in this scorching hot vintage.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

A dense, brooding red, this offers smoky black cherry, plum, iron, leather, vanilla and tobacco aromas and flavors. Smooth and complex, with harmony and a bright structure. The aftertaste echoes fruit, tobacco and spice notes. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

A blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, this has aromas of black-skinned berries, French oak, underbrush and Mediterranean scrub. The firm, full-bodied palate features cassis, licorice, vanilla and a hint of grilled bell pepper alongside assertive, fine-grained tannins. It’s still tightly wound and primary, so give it a few more years to fully integrate. Drink 2023– 2029.

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.
