Wine Critic Reviews:

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.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RP
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. Drinking Window 2022 - 2035

Decanter | 92 DEC
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. 5,833 cases made, 500 cases imported.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Tuscany: Italian culture worships the concept of a shared meal, and their wines scream for a chance to be uncorked with your friends and family. The region's Mediterranean climate and hilly landscape combine to create a beautiful viticultural environment, where every chosen grape is brought to its full potential and transmuted into drinks worthy of gods. The vineyards are planted along the higher reaches of the hill slopes, creating a gorgeous view of the Italian landscape. Once your lips kiss the wine, you're sent spiraling down a veritable whirlpool of pure flavor, touching upon notes of sensuous cherry, nuts, floral hints and undertones of honey and minerals. The wines can be as sweet as a fresh summer romance, and carry an air of dignity and elegance about them that can stimulate your intellect for months as you contemplate the seemingly infinite intricacies and details in the texture. Tuscany is an important part of Italian viticulture, and sampling their wines is the closest you can get to visiting this heavenly region and experiencing the culture.
Type of Wine Super Tuscan/IGT: Many grape varietals are planted all over the world so they're not typical for one single country anymore. For instance, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc form part of many blends coming from different countries. Super Tuscan wines are produced in this Italian region, but grape varietals used in the making are not indigenous - those are mostly Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
OWC No
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
