One family: Antinori, one passion: Wine. Brothers Piero and Lodovico Antinori are the owners of the beautiful Tenuta di Biserna from Tocane. According to Parker: "Tenuta di Biserno remains one of the best kept secrets in Bolgheri". The Biserno is named after the winery because the wine reflects the terroir and microclimate of the winery's environment. A nice way to determine the name of your wine. Only the best grapes are selected for the blend, resulting in a wine of depth, intensity, complexity, durability and elegance.

Part clay, part Bolgheri Conglomerate. The vines are trained using the spores cordon system with a density of 6,500 vines per hectare. 2016 is a vintage characterized by a mild winter and a cool and rainy spring lasting until early summer. The spring rains led to balanced growth of the vines, and the vines lived through the hot, dry months of July and August without stress. The relatively cool nights in August were a contributing factor to keeping the fruit flavors truly fresh. The grapes are harvested with great concentration and excellent tannins. The grapes were harvested by hand the first week of September through the second week of October 2016. The grapes were carefully selected on the vibrating conveyor belt at the winery. After destemming and gentle pressing, the alcoholic fermentation took place in truncated conical steel tanks for 3-4 weeks at 28°C. 65% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barriques, while the rest remained in stainless steel. The wine has matured for 15 months in French oak, a combination of 85% new and 15% secondfill barriques. The wine remained in the bottle for another 6 months before being released onto the market. It is a blend of Cabernet Franc (30%), Merlot (36%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Petit Verdot (4%)
