Tenuta di Biserno - 'Lodovico'

Tasting notes
93 Points - The Wine Advocate
"The 2013 Lodovico performs differently than you might expect, especially considering the knock-out performance of its cousin, Biserno from the same vintage. There was some discussion among my tasting group, which included Lodovico Antinori (directly at the estate), about the integrity of our samples, but it was not followed through with conviction. We concluded that the wine was simply in a closed phase when tasted. Indeed, this vintage offers a distinctive note of crushed granite and pencil shaving that you do not get in the others. This edition is almost salty in flavor compared to those. All said and done, I believe the 2013 vintage is enjoying a slower development, and we simply need to give it time. The tannins are dry but serve as ample glue to piece together the wine's many moving parts. It needs time to settle and flesh out." - Monica Lancer

    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.
