3 /5

Questo rosso è di colore ciliegia, con contorni marrone. Aroma di caffè. Il più morbido dei Bolgheri.
Penso che il miglior abbinamento sarebbe con la carne.
Lo prendemmo in un viaggio con un'altra coppia.
L'ordiniamo ogni volta che andiamo a mangiare fuori.
Questo 1997 ha un rapporto qualità/prezzo fenomenale.

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.

On sale in many gourmet shops.
Nice red Bordeaux colour. Smells like red tea. Fleshy, smoothy.
