TENUTA DI BISERNO
The Tenuta di Biserno is a property in an incredibly beautiful position, in the Alta Maremma, on a hill on the road from Bolgheri to Bibbona. A great panorama - from the towers of Bolgheri over the Tyrrhenian Sea to Bibbona you can let your eyes wander. In the back lie the forests of the Caselli nature reserve. And in between perfectly manicured vineyards.
The soil consists of what is known as the Bolgheri conglomerate - a mixture of mineral-rich alluvial soil, shell limestone and pebbles which provide drainage. Rather untypical for Bolgheri are the high proportions of lime and clay. Given the terroir and the variety of soils, Lodovico planted exclusively Bordeaux grape varieties, mostly Cabernet Franc, followed by Merlot, some Cabernet Sauvignon and a surprising amount of Petit Verdot. The soil is very varied in the different layers. Maritime sediments and clays on northwestern slopes provide ideal conditions for Merlot, while the gravelly plots at higher elevations with good drainage are perfect for Cabernets Franc.
