harvest note

2016 can be considered a vintage with great potential on the Tuscan coast in general and for Tenuta di Biserno and Campo di Sasso in particular. It was a warmer than normal winter but a cooler than normal spring with frequent rainfalls well into June. The growth was balanced and the vines were well prepared for the warm and dry July and August and did not suffer any excessive water deficit stress. Ripening was also balanced and the relatively cool nights in August helped retain fresh fruit aromas and flavors.

tasting note

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.

food pairing

Pair with roast measts, particulary beef, wheter it be filet de sirloin or Tuscan T-bone
