Compared to the other wines in this vertical tasting, the 2012 Biserno plays its cards closer to the chest. This vintage is linear, tight and ultimately less expressive when you really get down to it. The bouquet is characterized by its sharp directness. It emits quick pulses of blackberry, spice, smoke, leather and grilled herb. All the essential elements are there, and the aromas do very much deliver what you should expect of this important Tuscan blend of noble Bordeaux grapes. Yet, the volume is played at lower decibels in 2012 compared to the veritable chorus of exceptional harmonies played loud in 2013 and my favorite 2015 edition.

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.

Toscana IGT refers to wines not covered by the various DOC, DOCG or other IGT designations in the region of Tuscany. A producer may wish to label his red, white, rosé or frizzante wine from Tuscany as a Toscana IGT, although this designation does not carry as much weight as a specific DOC or DOCG labeling, as those wines are much more specific as to where the grapes were grown. Thus a Toscana IGT has only a vague meaning, being a wine from Tuscany; it could be quite simple or it could be rather complex.

Most versions are red and are made from Sangiovese; some are unoaked, while many receive oak aging. The principal red variety would be Sangiovese, the region’s most famous and widely planted variety. Wines made from Sangiovese offer red cherry fruit with red floral perfumes, good acidity and moderate tannins; lighter versions, ready to drink upon release, pair well with tomato-based soups and lighter pastas, while the more full-bodied examples work well with roasts, game and aged cheeses.
