About This Item: 
Sassicaia has arguably become Italy's flagship wine in less than fifty years, spearheading a new oenological movement: the Supertuscans. This new edition tells the story of how the wine came about almost by chance, retracing the roots of the winemaker's family and Mario Incisa's efforts to change local habits to create an Italian equivalent of a Bordeaux First Growth. The book is the ultimate source on Sassicaia: author Marco Fini, has interviewed the major players multiple times over a thirty-year span. Along with the history of Sassicaia, the book also explores the prize winning thoroughbred racehorses that train at the estate and the Bolgheri Bird Sanctuary, the first in Italy. With its rolling hills, cypress-lined avenues, and vineyards, the breathtaking beauty of the Tuscan coast is shown in its best light in all seasons by photographer Etienne Hunyady.
