Aromas of blueberry, fresh flower and walnut follow through to a full body, with super integrated tannins and a long, refined finish. Lovely, crafted red with class. This is a blend of cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Better in 2019.

Dark plum, chocolate, cloves, licorice and new leather give the 2012 much of its opulent, full-throttle personality. Ripeness is pushed to the edge in the Biserno, a wine built on serious extraction, with heavy oak influence to match. I would prefer to drink the 2012 sooner rather than later.

Brothers Marchese Lodovico Antinori and Marchese Piero Antinori teamed up to create this 120-acre estate in the hills of Bibbona near the Tuscan coast. The gravelly sites on the upper hillsides favor cabernet franc, which shines through in leafy tobacco flavors and fine herbal tones. Merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot round out the blend, saturating the wine with flavors of dark chocolate, briny olives and black tea. It feels plush, rich and balanced, the fine tannins polished during 16 months in French oak barriques (about 60 percent new). It will gain complexity as those voluminous flavors come together in the cellar.
