4 /5

Il Sassicaia si presenta con un colore rubino intenso, concentrato e profondo. Il profumo è complesso con sentori di frutti rossi e molto elegante. Il sapore è potente, concentrato, di grande spessore, con tannini dolci ed equilibrati. In bocca è ricco e denso ma contemporaneamente armonico ed elegante. Decisamente lunga la persistenza, con uno spessore organolettico di grande importanza e con un corredo polifenolico che assicurano a questo vino una straordinaria longevità.

Jag tog denna Sassicaia Bolgheri en gång med mina medarbetare.
Det är rött med en violett kant. Det doftar av rostade nötter. God smak , med inslag av karamell.
Jag tog det med bläckfisk och det gick bra.

Ens el van posar amb les punxes. Compartir-lo amb amics és sempre un plaer.
Barreja entre vermell i marró. Es noten aromes torrats. En recordo un toc fumat.

4/5

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.
