2017 Tenuta di Biserno Toscana IGT
Biserno is a majestic Supertuscan red wine that bases its rich tasting notes on the use of Bordeaux-style grapes. Elegant and enveloping, it presents in the glass of an intense and limpid deep ruby red. Complex nose with scents of blackberries, freshly ground coffee and licorice. The palate has an elegant structure with fine grained tannins, balanced acidity and a mineral feel on the lengthy finish.

This has a beautifully polished nose of blueberry, plum, walnut husk, cocoa, roasted coffee bean, praline and vanilla. It’s full-bodied and concentrated with ripe, velvety tannins. Lovely depth and focus. Superb. One of the best in a long time. Drink from 2023.
The 2017 vintage was warm and dry, yet not as much as 2003. 'In the vineyards there was not high vine stress as in 2012,' says winemaker Helena Lindberg, 'because the entire growing season was hot and thus the vineyards were adjusted to the heat'. Estery and youthful on the nose with a melted butter aroma, this has restrained bramble fruits in the mouth followed by plenty of clove and blond tobacco notes. It's mouth-filling and super-extracted on the mid-palate, pushed by almost firm acidity yet not without elegance on the finish. Drinking Window 2022 - 2037
