The purest and most direct expression of the unique terroir of Bibbona. The particular taste of the grape makes Pino di Biserno a classic wine with an intriguing aroma, distinguished by its excellent balance and timeless elegance. It shares its identity with its alter-ego, Biserno.

2018 vintage
Harvest Note
A moderate year with more consistent rainfall in spring, which made temperatures slightly cooler than average. Then things warmed up at the beginning of June and the vines blossomed, albeit slightly later than usual. The summer recorded average temperatures with good fluctuations between day and night. It can be considered a good vintage.
Tasting Note
Deep ruby red coloured wine. The bouquet features dark fruits such as plums and blackberries, hints of freshly-ground roast coffee, notes of cloves and brushwood. Delicious on the palate, with a balance of thick and elegant tannins and a long finish.

About the Grape

Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc usually shows tart red cherry and wild currant aromas and flavors with an herbal, spicy character. In the Loire, esp. Chinon and Saumur-Champigny, this grape shows firm minerality.
Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.
Merlot
Merlot makes plump, succulent wines to drink young or opulently massive wines for aging. Has silky, blackberry and currant fruit, with spice, earth, tobacco and chocolate notes, and soft tannins.
Petit Verdot
Petit Verdot makes a dark, firmly structured, tannic wine with superbly balancing acidity, and fresh, full flavors and aromas of spice, pepper and black fruits with notes of violets.
