Toscana Il Pino di Biserno Tenuta di Biserno 93js 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Soft and velvety textured now. Aromas of blackberries with hints of sweet tobacco follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins with juicy and beautiful fruit. Mostly Cabernet Franc with some Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Just coming around now. Better than I remember...93" JamesSuckling.com 8/12 "From Marchese Lodovico Antinori’s beautiful wine estate in Bibbona, this boasts the heritage of the great super Tuscan family to which it belongs. The blend is Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, and the overall effect is simply gorgeous. Richness, generosity and persistence characterize the mouthfeel, and the bouquet is driven by aromas of red cherry, chocolate and spice...93" WE 10/12 "The 2007 Il Pino di Biserno bursts onto the palate with waves of mocha, espresso, sweet herbs and plums. It is a fat, opulent wine that stands quite in contrast to the cooler, introspective 2008. There is an openness and generosity that is especially rewarding for a wine meant to be enjoyed on the young side. This is an exceptional effort from Tenuta di Biserno. Il Pino di Biserno is the estate’s second wine. In 2007 the blend was 35% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The malo was done in equal parts oak and stainless steel and the wine was subsequently aged in French oak (65%) and stainless steel (35%). Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021...92" WA 8/11 "Blackberry and fresh herbs on the nose follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and raisin, berries and spices on the finish. A ripe, supercharged style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best after 2012...92" WS 10/09
