2012 Tenuta di Biserno ‘Biserno’
by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale $79.94 (reg. $144.94)
The flagship wine from Tenuta di Biserno, simply called "Biserno," is true Tuscan royalty and today we have a phenomenal price - over 40% off and the best price of any vintage!
Fans of the best Super Tuscans will immediately recognize the name behind this project. Headed up by Lodovico Antinori (the Antinori family goes back 26 generations to the 1400s in Tuscany), Galloni suggests Lodovico has "pretty much seen it all, including the birth of Sassicaia, his cousin's wine and the first great Tuscan red from the coast. In the mid-1980s Antinori founded Ornellaia, which in turn established its own reputation as a world-class estate. Antinori's newest project aims to recreate that spirit of adventure. The wines are rich and textured, stylistically closer to Ornellaia than Sassicaia, but very much with their own personalities."
The flagship wine from this property has quickly taken on its own fantastic reputation and in 2012 they created "a seriously beautiful wine...the Biserno has a lot to offer" (AG). Few listings are under $100 for any vintage of this wine and nothing even remotely close to our price, so if you're a fan of the best Super Tuscans out there you'll definitely want to take advantage right away. Cheers!
