Det passade inte till vår meny. Jag tog det med några goda vänner.
Röda kanter. Aromer av svart choklad. Det hade en salt touch.

Un vi ideal per regalar-li a un pare.
Rubí intens, de capa alta. Olor de compota de fruita madura. Sabor a fusta, no sé si del raïm o de la bóta.
Per a un peix molt especiat aquest Sassicaia Bolgheri queda ben.

Jeg tviler ikke , jeg kjøper den hos Uvinum.
Kirsebær, i det laveste laget. En rødevin som lukter av kirsebær og lakrisrot. Den hadde en veldig flat smak.

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.
