TENUTA DI BISERNO 'BISERNO' 2008 1.5L
91 Points - Monica Larner - The Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Biserno is the first wine in this vertical (going from youngest to oldest vintage) to show overt signs of its evolution. Based on that, we can safely give these wines a 10-year drinking window at a bare minimum. The 2008 Biserno shows faded primary fruit with more emphasis on dry spice, toast, Spanish cedar and cinnamon. The wine is aged in barrique for 18 months, and two-thirds of that oak is new. This was a very hot vintage, even more so than 2007. Those warm growing conditions are evident in the darkness, extraction and savory aromas presented here. One last observation is the prominence of Cabernet-driven aromas of medical herb and wild sage. That varietal signature is very pronounced when drinking the wine today."
