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.

James Suckling
Very subtle aromas of blackberries, black olives, tobacco, cedar and wet earth. Wild mushrooms, such as oyster mushrooms. Full-bodied with firm, very silky tannins and succulent fruit. Extremely refined and balanced with a long, racy finish. Great complexity. What 2017 had in concentration, this has in elegance and complexity. Wonderful length. A blend of 28% cabernet franc, 35% cabernet sauvignon and 32% merlot, the rest petit verdot. Try after 2025, but already an impressive young wine.
W&S 96
Wine & Spirits

You can feel the warm days and cool nights of the 2018 season in the even ripeness of this wine’s fruit, and in the lively acidity that infuses this wine’s dark plum and black-currant flavors. The wine rested for 15 months in French-oak barriques (85 percent new), gaining notes of ginger and black pepper and a caramel richness that amplifies the rich fruit. Its intense flavors and youthful vigor offer good cellaring potential.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Biserno is a beast of a wine (packaged in a heavy glass bottle) that fills the room with its perfumes as you pour the wine into your glass. The bouquet is thickly layered and rich with potent notes of ripe blackberry and blackish plum followed by baker's chocolate, spice and dark mahogany or cigar box. Excellent work has been achieved to tame the tannins, and the wine offers a long, polished feel and an impactful, full-bodied presence. The blend of fruit used here (from a seven-hectare parcel) is 28% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Blackberry and plum fruit is shaded by vanilla, milk chocolate and spice in this dense, supple red, ending with spice and toasty oak accents. This has a solid structure, but the overall harmony is there. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2023 through 2035.

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.
