90% Cabernet Franc, 10 % Petit Verdot.
Parker 99 Punkte: This is the flagship wine from Tenuta di Biserno. It represents a special selection of grapes from within the estate's Bellaria vineyard that is planted to the same Bordeaux varieties used to make the Biserno. The 2016 Lodovico is an exceptional expression with enormous depth and a contemporary taste profile that weighs concentration and power against the careful precision of the varieties used in the blend. The results are sharp and focused, allowing for detailed renditions of blackberry and plum followed by elegance, spice, toast and chocolate. The tannins are sweet and carefully integrated within the rich fiber of the wine. Tenuta di Biserno has found its stride.
Suckling 95 Punkte: A very fine and polished red with black cherries and hints of walnuts on the nose and palate. Medium body. Lovely, tensioned tannins. Sleek and racy. Drink or hold.
Wine Spectator 95 Punkte: An opulent red that delivers saturated blackberry, black currant and blueberry fruit, shaded by coconut and toasty oak. Flashes of olive and tobacco emerge as this plays out on the long aftertaste. Harmonious and velvety, this retains a sense of elegance. Best from 2021 through 2035. 50 cases imported.
