Jag rekommenderar att ta den med serranoskinka. Jag frågar alltid efter den under mina vänners middagsbjudningar.
Körsbärsröd. Det luktade kola och kaffe. Choklad och kola smak.

Um vinho tinto especial, para alguém igualmente especial.
Tinto de cor vermelho acastanhado. Aromas a alcaçuz e violeta. Havia um sabor como de chocolate suave.
Não apetecia comer com este vinho.

I drank it with my best friend.
Red ruby colour with reddish brown edges. The smell of violets was so strong that it seemed curious to me. Predominating aromas of red fruits.
Better pair it with vegetables.

Smells good, like a mix of raspberry und strawberry. An astonishing Bolgheri Sassicaia on the palate.
It is worth re-buying this Marchesi Incisa Della Rocchetta Bolgheri Sassicaia Magnum.
