Sassicaia 2008 (Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon)
Sassicaia is undoubtedly one of those Italian wines that you cannot miss, a very traditional Bordeaux style combined with the charisma of indigenous Cabernet, which make this wine so original. It also comes with its own certificate of origin.
It has an intense, concentrated and deep ruby color. The elegant aroma is complex with notes of red fruits. Classic herbaceous scent harmoniously integrated; perfume typically understory or more precisely of Mediterranean spot, to several typical tertiary scents of aging.

The wine has a long finish with a decisive organoleptic depth and structure of polyphenol which guarantees longevity of this extraordinary wine.

I tried it in a bar.
