Reviews of Sassicaia Magnum 2015
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.
Highly recommend to drink it with friends at a barbecue.
I thought the Sassicaia Magnum would be perfect for a romantic evening.
Opaque cherry red. Aromas of coffee, toffee. Caramel.
The pairing really complemented the wine.
