Want to gift the perfect 40th birthday gift? Sassicaia 1980 may be what you are looking for
How to impress a loved one who is celebrating a personal milestone of 40th in 2020?
The perfect gift for someone's 40th is the spectacularly brilliant and yet respectfully and unassumingly, carrying its charm and all that praise casually, Sassicaia 1980.
Sassicaia obviously is not new to the fame but back in 1980 it wasn't in every collector's wine cellar, where it should have been.
(If it was in yours, you are a star ⭐ 🍷🙏)
Although it had started gaining the just recognition a few years ago in 1978 when, as we mentioned in a prior post it triumphed over a field of "great clarets" of 33 wines from 11 countries to earn that international reputation.
So, by the time the 1980 came, Sassicaia was already well known to a great extent.
We started first looking for 1980 bottles at the end of last year for a customer and chanced upon this one.
What excited me most personally was how this bottle, which came from a seemingly ordinary vintage has developed and flourished over its long tenure.
Aside of the critical reviews from famous critics📝 (and even more important in some way), is how it has caught the attention of the wine lovers the world over. Some are those who were lucky to buy in the days when wine wasn't an investment but more a love affair. Others are those who were willing to dig deeper (in pockets 😃).
But the virtual world is awash with ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reviews and reviewers who can't seem to get enough of this wine.
A customer opened it recently to mark such a moment and another one is holding onto it for their special moment later this year.
Four more left each @ $650 for you to have a similar opportunity to make that great day even more memorable.
