Another special limited edition, this time done by a Italian premium winemaker to look like a bottle of their 1985 wine from the top. It comes with one bottle of Sassicaia wine (not necessarily the ’85 vintage).
It’s interesting to know that a bottle of ’85 Sassicaia goes for about $1000 at auction $1400 retail… however they’re trying to sell these MINIs with a markup as if they were including a FULL case of wine. But the wheels and interior sure look special!
