Day #359 of the year.

Tenuta di Biserno, Biserno Toscana

Christmas Eve is a special day. I cook, bake, and wrap last-minute gifts and then make my way to my family home. I am of Italian heritage, so walking in I’m greeted with a glass of red wine, a table of appetizers, and a kitchen full of laughter. Over the years, one of my favorite wine finds has been the Tenuta di Biserno, Biserno Toscana: a red blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of blackberries, freshly ground coffee, and licorice. When I first tasted this wine, it reminded me of home and has become one of the wines I enjoy sharing with friends and family during the holidays!

Tasting Notes

Biserno shows immediately its quality with the taste of impeccable cherry, blackberry and dark prune flavors. It presents savory spice and tobacco framed with precision and focus. There is no doubt that this is one of the best editions of Biserno.
