Tenuta di Biserno Biserno 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Maremma Toscana|
|Brand||Tenuta di Biserno|
The 2016 Biserno is a softly textured wine with enormous richness, plushness and softness. The bouquet opens to profound depth with thick layers of dark fruit, sweet spice, chocolate, tar and camphor ash. Biserno is a large-frame, full-bodied blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. This vintage delivers enormous precision, grace and sharpness; however, the lasting impression it leaves is one of power, opulence and irresistible concentration. This wine speaks generously to all the senses, and to your heart. 64% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon
Lodovico Antinori estate Biserno is a boutique winery with vineyards at the northern edge of Bolgheri village, bordering Bibbona. Biserno's main character is its dense and creamy palate with full body and great depth. The 2016 is slightly leafy on the nose, with a dried eucalyptus leaf aroma followed by precise cassis fruit on the palate. It will evolve well thanks to its concentration and balance, developing its typical depth of tarry and earthy notes that are typical of this mediterranean climate.
The 2019 Biserno is a gorgeous, elegant wine that captures the essence of the house style today. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, licorice and incense are all laced together. The 2019 is deep and fleshy yet also retains mid-weight structure and terrific energy. It's one of the most elegant wines I have tasted here.
Complex aromas of dark fruit and smoky meat with hints of black licorice. Subtle yet rich. Full bodied, very velvety and round yet fine grained in the tannins. Extremely long and juicy.
A linear, even racy, style, this red evokes black currant, blackberry, plum, tobacco and rosemary flavors. Firms up, with grainy tannins on the spicy finish, yet is well-balanced and intense overall. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2024 through 2035.
