A dream come true. In 1994, while looking for additional land to expand his Tenuta dell’Ornellaia vineyard, Lodovico Antinori discovered the property of Tenuta di Biserno near Bibbona. What he found, however, had so much potential that he was inspired to develop a quite different plan; with more hills and stones than nearby Bolgheri, this land appeared to be ideally suited to produce a new and different wine! “It’s a magical place with wonderful soil and micro–climate, very similar to that of Bolgheri.” The experts confirmed his appraisal – Tenuta di Biserno is a perfect terroir – and so, for the first time in more than two decades, Lodovico and Piero Antinori decided to start a new winery together.
