It is actually this beautiful.

View from sasella


The view from the “grape trolley” that heroically tugs itself up this mountain, chugging along, powered by a lawnmower engine.  Sassella vineyards, perched on the side of a granite mountain, roots scattering, searching valiantly for some amount of topsoil to hold onto.  This is extreme viticulture.  This is emotion in wine.

About The Author

I love all things Italian: the beautiful country of Italia, the Italians themselves, the language, the food… and above all, I love Italian wine. The people I meet in my charmed life are fascinating, the wines are extraordinary. I needed a special place like this to write about them, and to remember them.
