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.

4 /5

At a dinner with other couples.
Good colour. A red that smells of cherry and licorice. I noticed a licorice flavour.
A 2013 goes fine with snacks.

I got it as a gift.
Red base colour with violet hints. I liked its toasted aromas. I had it cooled and it tasted both, fresh and soft.

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.
