Biserno lies in Bibbona where the soil is very rich in minerals. This persuaded Marchese Lodovico Antinori to plant exclusively Bordeaux varieties, significant proportions of Cabernet Franc, followed by Merlot, some Cabernet Sauvignon and surprisingly high proportions of Petit Verdot. Biserno enjoys excellent light, and benefits from both perfect exposure to the sun, as well as cooling sea breezes. The estate already exercises very high maintenance and disciplined, sustainable, agriculture with minimum intervention.
"On the nose, there is a rather beguiling balance of bright playfulness and brooding sobriety - quite a feat, and very much part of the overall charm. There is abundant fruit here, fresh and upbeat, with hints of spice and dark coffee, complemented by almost citric freshness and an underlying
saline seam of minerals. Beautifully balanced, even in its infancy, this will continue to improve. The floral aromatics on the attenuated finish add additional elegance and flair - lovely wine."
