94 Points - The Wine Advocate
"The 2013 Il Pino di Biserno is a gorgeous wine with a force of energy and liveliness that is uncommon to see in a wine of this extract and sophistication. Dark fruit tones of blackberry, plum and dried cherry are immediately followed by spice, leather and tobacco. The effect is soothing, intense and compelling. This is a beautiful wine from a classic vintage, but the tannins are definitely on the young side. It needs a minimum of three to five more years of cellar aging in order to show the splendour that this wine holds within." Monica Lancer

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.
