Winemaker Notes

Brilliant deep ruby red. Intense nose with fruity, floral and spicy notes; cherries, black currants, blackberries, chocolate, coffee, black pepper. Velvety tannins and a good acidity gives backboneand structure to the rich flavors. The wine has a seamless balance with a long and fine finish.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Biserno (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot) is humming with energy and bold fruit flavors of blackberry, chocolate-covered cherry, rum cake, exotic spice, moist pipe tobacco, salvia and dried garden herb. It shows enormous balance and a profound, opulent mouthfeel. The finish is long and extra smooth. Give this beautiful Tuscan blend a few more years in the bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
JS 95
James Suckling
Aromas of blackberries, rosemary, blueberries, and spices. Full body, with fine tannins and a racy, clean finish. Very fine indeed. It goes on for minutes.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This beautiful blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon opens with bold intensity and personality. Yes, this is a plush and modern wine, but it is also unforgettably delicious. Bright cherry and blackberry are backed by chocolate, spice, leather and pipe tobacco.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Elegant and aromatic, offering cherry, black currant, violet, cedar and tobacco aromas and flavors. Balanced, this lingers with fruit and spice on the finish. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2018. 1,660 cases made.

Tenuta di Biserno , Tuscany, Italy
Image of winery
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."

One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
