The 2016 Biserno is a softly textured wine with enormous richness, plushness and softness. The bouquet opens to profound depth with thick layers of dark fruit, sweet spice, chocolate, tar and camphor ash. Biserno is a large-frame, full-bodied blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. This vintage delivers enormous precision, grace and sharpness; however, the lasting impression it leaves is one of power, opulence and irresistible concentration. This wine speaks generously to all the senses, and to your heart.

In terms of power and freshness, this lies somewhere between the Lodovico and the Il Pino this vintage, offering lots of beautiful, pure, blackcurrants on the nose, which are bolstered by tile, iodine and crushed stones. The palate shows impeccable finesse and polish, due partly to the tannin quality, but also to the ever-present freshness that gives this spine and willpower. Blend of cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Drink in 2024.
