“Blackberries, blueberries, dried raspberries, cedar, clove and vanilla bean on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and juicy layers of ripe fruit. Cocoa and dried herbs, too. Drink from 2022.” – 95 Points, James Suckling

“The Tenuta di Biserno 2018 Il Pino di Biserno is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc from the sun-kissed coast of Tuscany. This is a velvety and nicely extracted expression that delivers textbook aromas of dark fruit, dried blackberry, spice, leather, tar and tobacco. Comparatively speaking, this vintage is leaner compared to past editions. The wine is not quite full-bodied, but almost, and it offers the textural emphasis and power to pair with a filet mignon, cooked rare and seared briefly on either side over an open fire”. – 93 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


The brainchild of Marchese Lodovico Antinori, Tenuta di Biserno is a 90 hectare estate set in Western Tuscany, in the coastal area of the Upper Marrema. It lies among the hills of Bibbona and borders the Bolgheri DOC. Lodovico Antinori chose this particular terroir because it is “very similar to Saint Emilion and Pomerol”. It logically follows that the estate would planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, on soils comprising of sand and silt with a high percentage of clay. The wines, produced with renown consultant Michel Rolland are bold, intense and detailed in the Super Tuscan style and include the flagship blend ‘Biserno’ and the “second wine” of the estate, ‘Il Pino di Biserno’.
