Press - Spirito di Vino Asia (Oct/Nov 2016)

Symbols of male passions

Massimo Ferragamo with Brunello di Montalcino 2011 Castiglion del Bosco, Gelesio Gaetani d' Aragona with Sassicaia 2006 Tenuta San Guido, and Salvotore Ferragamo with Alessandro del Borro 2012 Il Borro, three of the seven wines at the tasting in Palazzo Gondi for Cartier's global launch of the Drive de Cartier watch during the course of Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence; it is a steel watch with self-winding mechanical movement, in this picture matched to perfection with vintage cuff-links in three types of gold, also from Cartier.


For the world preview presentation of the Drive de Cartier watch, the Maison organized Talk sur la tomate in Florence and a superb tasting of great Tuscan reds.


The Sassicaia 2006 is in great form, at 10 years since the harvest, it is beginning to show unmistakable signs of its superior calibre.

Cassis and garrigue merge and soar in unison, sea and Mediterranean scrub, undergrowth, and dark berries. Again and again, Maremma in a glass and a sublime expression of elegance. Benchmark Sassicaia.
