It was part of a wine tasting.
Deep Burgundy colour. The aromas of coffee and toffee predominate. It's quite dense, I liked it.
Sassicaia pairs very well with a spicy fish .

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.
