More information

The Biserno Toscana Rosso IGT from Tenuta Biserno is the flagship of the winery of the same name and a sensational red terroir wine from Maremma. In the glass the biserno shines intensely dark red, on the nose opens a dense, complex bouquet with aromas of red and dark fruits, cherry, blackberry and dark plum. Spicy notes, freshly ground coffee and tobacco underline the fruity character.

On the palate, the biserno is incredibly elegant. Balanced, gentle, present tannins and a flavourful, flavourful variety reveal themselves, which lend depth to this great cuvée. The finale is endlessly long, soft and sustainable. A wine with personality and international character, unique reflection of the terroir and climate of the Alta Maremma.

Vinification of Biserno Toscana Rosso by Tenuta Biserno

This cuvée is a selection of the best grapes from Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The vineyards stand on the clayey and sandy alluvial soils typical of this area of Maremma. After the selective harvest of the best, perfectly ripened grapes, depending on the grape variety, from the beginning of September to the second week of October, a further manual selection on vibratory conveyors takes place in the wine cellar. The grapes are then destemmed and gently pressed. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for a period of 3 to 4 weeks. 60% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, the rest in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged for 15 months in French oak barrels, 75% in new barrels and 25% in second batch barrels. The Biserno Rosso is then bottled and aged for a further 12 months in the bottle store before it is ready for sale. Biserno Toscana Rosso has a storage potential of 15 years and longer.

Food recommendation for Biserno Rosso

This exceptional terroir wine is a great treat both on its own and with selected dishes, especially meat dishes, game and mature cheeses. The biserno is already good to drink, but still has a lot of potential to get even better over time. Ideally, open it up to 4 hours before serving in the first decade. With age, the biserno takes less time to breathe.
