Cabernet Franc dominates this blend (52%), with a high percentage of Merlot (30%) confirming the Left-bank style of this wine from Bibbona, on the northern side of Bolgheri. The 2016 was one of the best vintages of the past 10 years. The restrained cassis aroma is supported by eucalyptus leaf and mediterranean herbs such as helichrysum, with balsamic depth of cedar wood. Lively yet silky on the palate, it has natural refreshing acidity. Elegant, flawless and intensely Mediterranean. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. ... More details

Thick and richly endowed, the 2016 Il Pino di Biserno (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon) is a full-bodied Tuscan blend with dark fruit, spice, tobacco, tar and licorice, all delivered with seamless execution and care. This wine offers thick density followed by deep layers of sweet spice and succulent black fruit.

The 2016 Il Pino di Biserno is powerful, if rather somber. Dark fruit, scorched earth, graphite, leather, tobacco and torrefaction add to an impression of depth and gravitas. Readers will have to be patient with the 2016, as it needs at least a few years in bottle to shed some of its formidable tannic heft. Even today, though, the 2016 is impressive. I especially admire the way it pulses with energy and tension.

Aromas of crushed raspberries, earth, white pepper, and lemon rind follow through to a medium body, light tannins and a clean finish. Fine and clean. Needs a year or two to soften. Try in 2021.

Rated 91 by Wine Spectator
This red is complex and balanced, showing herbal and olive aromas and flavors, along with black currant, iron and tobacco notes. Firm tannins mark the finish as this persists, revealing fruit and savory herb details. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2020 through 2026. 5,833 cases made, 500 cases imported.

Region: Tuscany

The central Italian region of Tuscany is widely understood to be one of the world's most famous and highly regarded wine regions. The beautiful rolling hillsides and medieval towns and castles which are a key feature of the area are also home to many of Europe's finest wineries, and extremely high quality vineyards growing the distinctive Sangiovese and Vernaccia grape varietals which are the flavorful backbone of Tuscany's wonderful red and white wines. For almost three thousand years, this region has been recognized as an ideal home for wine production on a large scale, and the ancient Etruscans, Greeks and Romans all noticed that fine grape varietals flourished on the unique soils and under the hot sunshine which typifies the area. Today, Tuscany is home to a wide range of wines, from the traditional to the complex, but all dedicated to excellent flavors and aromas, and maintaining the region's international reputation.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
