Lovely and open. Some hints of tobacco with dark blue fruit and open knit red fruit. Persistent and deep. Really lovely

Quiet tonight, but still PFG. Legendary wine that is always inspiring to drink.

1985 Sassicaia. Big and young and tight. Decanted an hour before pouring. High acid, eucalyptus notes.

Recycling my last year’s tasting note as they are identical. Beautiful ruby color, slight garnet rim. Reticent nose at first, which uncoiled to reveal dark fruit, soil, dried herbs and lead pencil. Still tannic backbone on the palate, which required some time to unfold. Extremely long finish. Beautiful wine in perfect condition.
