As I could not find it in my city, I bought it online and I was pleased.
A beautiful vivid colour. Peculiar aromas of raspberry. A very powerful red.

Sassicaia Bolgheri 2002

4 /5

Violet red colour of a young wine. Especially noticeable smoky aromas in this Tenuta San Guido. Good acidity for my taste.
To this red would have paired better with a softer meat.
It was part of a Corporate gift.

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.

3.5/5

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.
