Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

97 JS / 96 WA

Very subtle aromas of blackberries, black olives, tobacco, cedar and wet earth. Wild mushrooms, such as oyster mushrooms. Full-bodied with firm, very silky tannins and succulent fruit. Extremely refined and balanced with a long, racy finish. Great complexity. What 2017 had in concentration, this has in elegance and complexity. Wonderful length. A blend of 28% cabernet franc, 35% cabernet sauvignon and 32% merlot, the rest petit verdot. Try after 2025, but already an impressive young wine.—James Suckling

The 2018 Biserno is a beast of a wine (packaged in a heavy glass bottle) that fills the room with its perfumes as you pour the wine into your glass. The bouquet is thickly layered and rich with potent notes of ripe blackberry and blackish plum followed by baker's chocolate, spice and dark mahogany or cigar box. Excellent work has been achieved to tame the tannins, and the wine offers a long, polished feel and an impactful, full-bodied presence. The blend of fruit used here (from a seven-hectare parcel) is 28% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Production is 30,000 bottles.—Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

The current evolution of this estate sees Tenuta di Biserno and Lodovico as two parallel brands under the Tenuta di Biserno umbrella. Tenuta di Biserno is managed by Niccolò Marzichi Lenzi, the son of Ilaria Antinori (sister to Piero and Lodovico Antinori) and is a family business spanning several generations. Tenuta di Biserno farms 40 hectares of vines in Bibbona, just across the municipality line from Bolgheri. The vines were planted in 2002 in mixed calcareous clay soils known locally as "Bolgheri conglomerates." High density, 6,500-plants-per-hectare spacing was used for Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A few years later, a special parcel within the estate was recognized for its distinctive results. That parcel would become the Vigna Lodovico for the wine Lodovico.—The Wine Advocate
