This is the headline wine from Lodovico Antinori's Tenuta di Biserno. The hot vintage 2017 Lodovico shows a rich and deeply saturated colour with elegant tones of dark fruit, spice, rum cake, dried plum, jerky, charred meat and cured tobacco. Like the Biserno (which is also a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot), this special vineyard selection reveals slightly less depth and dimension in terms of mouthfeel. That more compact palate is a common feature of the 2017 vintage in which hard work and severe fruit selection was achieved in order to counter the jammy concentration of the berries. This remains a big wine, however, with the balanced and bright acidity that is a crucial indicator of the wine's undeniable quality and pedigree.
This is the flagship wine from Tenuta di Biserno. It represents a special selection of grapes from within the estate's Bellaria vineyard that is planted to the same Bordeaux varieties used to make the Biserno. The 2016 Lodovico is an exceptional expression with enormous depth and a contemporary taste profile that weighs concentration and power against the careful precision of the varieties used in the blend. The results are sharp and focused, allowing for detailed renditions of blackberry and plum followed by elegance, spice, toast and chocolate. The tannins are sweet and carefully integrated within the rich fiber of the wine. Tenuta di Biserno has found its stride.

Within the estate there is a very individual parcel, set apart, which was found to produce wines of a very particular, unique character and personality. Like Masseto in the past, Vigna Lodovico, provides the Biserno estate’s jewel in the crown.  Lodovico is an extraordinary wine, produced in tiny amounts and only in vintages where all the elements come together to create the very best possible translation of this site. The vineyard is managed, throughout the year, with passion and rigorous attention to detail. To date, the Marchese’s perfectionism has only allowed five vintages to be released, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2013 averaging 6.000 bottles per vintage.

"Mostly Cabernet Franc with small quantities of Petit Verdot, the 2011 Lodovico is a monument to a man. This is the newest edition to Lodovico Antinori’s Biserno portfolio and the results are just as burly, extravagant and sophisticated as the man behind the bottle. This canvas is covered in large brush strokes of cigar ash, dark fruit, tobacco and dark chocolate. It sports very wide shoulders and a muscular build that is supported by a firming tannic structure. This wine should be put aside in your cellar for a decade or longer."

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

The site for Tenuta di Biserno was discovered by Lodovico Antinori in 1995, whilst he was researching land suitable for extending Ornellaia. He realised that whilst the geology and geography were remarkably different from those at Ornellaia given that they were much hillier and stonier, the site was indeed something to get excited about and should be a separate project. As it stood, Lodovico was freed from Ornellaia with an historic change in ownership and he entered into a technical relationship with his brother Marchese Piero Antinori and landowner Umberto Mannoni. Together, they decided to breathe life into the potentially fabulous Biserno Estate.

Tenuta di Biserno is a 49 hectare estate, situated in Alta Maremma, coastal, western Tuscany, nestling amongst the hills of Bibbona. It borders the historic village of Bolgheri and enjoys beautiful views towards the Tyrrhenian Sea. Given the terroir, and the range of soils, Lodovico planted exclusively Bordeaux varietals, principally Cabernet Franc, followed by Merlot, some Cabernet Sauvignon and surprisingly high proportions of Petit Verdot. The range consists of the top wine Lodovico, Biserno and Il Pino di Biserno.

Italy's most ancient wine region, Tuscany may not be a heavyweight in terms of quantity, but as the home of two of the country's most famous fine wines – Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino – it certainly holds its own in terms of quality. Tuscany's climate ranges from Mediterranean on the coast to continental deep in the Apennines. More than two thirds of the province is covered with hills, an important terroir factor in its fine wines.
