4 /5

I had it with fish, but I didn't like the fish, and therefore the wine didn't taste right. I liked sharing this wine with someone special.
Reddish towards brown colour. Toasty and tobacco aromas. Mild but with a long aftertaste.

I enjoyed it at a barbecue. A friend brought it for dinner.
The border colour was almost brown. Ripe fruit. I didn't notice any aftertaste, but the taste was right.

It is a characteristic of Sassicaia to expect great results even in these less celebrated vintages. And this tendency was even more reinforced in the last decade. Sassicaia is intense, concentrated and deep ruby colour. Very complex and elegant on the nose, with scents of red fruits.
Strong, concentrated, with sweet and balanced tannins on the palate. Very long finish with very important organoleptic and poliphenolic aspects, which will ensure to this wine an extraordinary longevity.

Just drunk. Nothing to say, wine perfect with no defects.
Not worth the cost, however. Absolutely not good value for money. With that money you can buy other wines. Price is right for me 60 euro.
