4 /5

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 .

Suitable for a menu as varied as we had. A bottle of this red for two, solo.
Bright red and purple reflections. Very good aromas of vanilla. Full-bodied.

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.
