52% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 15% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon
The wine is aged for 12 months in new and second-use French oak barrique and 10% of the volume in stainless steel.
2017 was a warm and dry year for the region, from little rainfall during winter to a summer with insignificant scattered millimetres of rain during the four-month period from early May to early September.It was a year of adverse weather phenomena in many parts of Europe with frost, hail storms and torrential rain, and many wine regions suffered a reduction in production volume. Tenuta di Biserno and Tenuta Campo di Sasso were fortunate in the sense that apart from the dry and warm to hot conditions our vineyards escaped all damaging weather events.
Il Pino shows an intense nose with ripe fruit and some spicy notes. The oak is well integrated and adds complexity and balance to the fruit. The wine is medium to full bodied with ripe tannins, fine acidity and great length. The wine has all the components to develop beautifully in the next 7 to 10 years.
Pair with roast meats, particularly beef, whether it be filet de sirloin or Tuscan T-Bone.
