Tenuta di Biserno

It is impossible to separate the Biserno Estate from the man whose inspiration lies behind it, Marchese Lodovico Antinori, original founder of the Ornellaia estate. 

About

Tenuta di Biserno is a 90-hectare estate situated in coastal western Tuscany, hidden amongst the hills of Bibbona in the Upper Maremma. The beautiful sweeping views across to the Tyrrhenian Sea, towards Corsica, are a constant reminder of its moderating coastal influence. The mineral rich soil of the Bibbona vineyards is planted exclusively, at Marchese Lodovico’s behest, with well-suited Bordeaux varietals, producing three wines, Il Pino di Biserno, the eponymous Biserno and, very rarely, Lodovico. The blends include significant proportions of Cabernet Franc, followed by Merlot, some Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, vintage dependent. Biserno enjoys excellent light, and benefits from perfect exposure to the sun as well as wonderfully cooling sea breezes.

The estate team exercises very high maintenance and disciplined, sustainable, agriculture with minimum intervention. Helena Lindberg, winemaker, is tasked with interpreting the ingredients of the vineyards as faithfully as possible. Formerly a food scientist, she has worked in the Barossa Valley. then New Zealand, ultimately studying oenology in France. She has worked with Lodovico since 2004. Biserno is in extremely good hands.
