Biserno is our flagship wine, the eponymous symbol of our estate, Tenuta di Biserno. Born as a classic Bordeaux blend, its grapes come from vineyards perfectly suited to creating Biserno’s distinctive, individual style. The resulting wine has a remarkable combination of characteristics, which together create a rare blend of finesse, elegance, complexity, weight, intensity, length and freshness.
The grapes were carefully selected on the vibrating belt at the winery. After destemming and soft pressing, the alcoholic fermentation took place in truncated conical steel tanks for 3-4 weeks at 28°C. 89% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barriques, while the remainder stayed in stainless steel.
The wine spent 15 months in French oak, a combination of 85% new and 15% secondfill barriques. The wine spent a further 6 months in bottle before release.
A lively purple colour, this is a wine of great complexity – a distinctive feature of the vintage. In the glass, notes of Mediterranean heathland, alfalfa and rosemary are immediately apparent, followed by fruits such as morello cherry and soft spices such as vanilla. The evolution
continues with delicate toasty hints of cocoa. The palate is beautifully balanced with excellent tannins and good length.
