4 /5

Denna Sassicaia Magnum är intensivt körsbärsröd. Lukten var något laddad.Jag lät den stå ett par dagar och sedan smakade den utgången.
Bolgheri Sassicaia är ett bra område för att dricka vin och äta mat.
Jag prövade detta med vännerna från Mundillo.

Cor-de-cereja, de capa muito alta. Sente-se o aroma a baunilha.Não notei nenhum travo.
Não combinava com o peixe.
Deve ser bebido com um bom amigo.

Tilsynelatende rubin , hadde mer intense refleksjoner. Duft av bringebær.Dessverre smakte den eddik.
Sassicaia Magnum var bedre enn maten.
En vin å drikke med familien.
