Tenuta di Biserno 2016 Il Pino di Biserno IGT Toscana Italy
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 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.
93 points James Suckling - 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.
92 points Decanter - Deep, dark and brooding colour and nose. Still very much an infant. A good melange of cedar and spice, combined with dark berry and currant fruit, fine-grained tannins and a deft touch of oak. Lots of potential here, but too young at the moment.
91 points 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.
Intense nose with ripe fruit and some spicy notes. The oak is well integrated and adds complexity and balance to the fruit. Medium to full bodied with ripe tannins, a fine acidity and great length. The wine is very young at release in September 2018 and has all the components to develop beautifully in the next few years.
Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc
