4 /5

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.
