Lodovico Antinori discovered the property which would become Tenuta di Biserno back in 1995, whilst researching land suitable for extending Ornellaia. What he saw excited him but he recognised that the geology and geography were markedly different from those of Ornellaia, much hillier and stonier. This would have to be a separate project. In the event, freed from Ornellaia and with an historic change in their relationship, Lodovico entered into a technical relationship with his brother Marchese Piero Antinori and landowner Umberto Mannoni. Together, they decided to breathe life into the potentially fabulous Biserno Estate.
