he Incisa della Rocchetta family were important a figures in the medieval and Renaissance history of Northern Italy The MARQyiSATE of incisa controlled the two banks of the river belbo. between the langhe and the plains of Alessandria, in the long line of the incisa della rocchetta family there stands out first of all Leopold, cameral magistrate to the 'Imperial Royal government of lombardy and veneto' up to 1840. when he left public office to ret irk to the ancestral home in rocchetta tanaro. here. in the family business. he would cultivate his passion for viticulture. leopold would publish two catalogues of the precious italian and foreign vines collected by him. books which are still today considered to be a bibliographical rarity. rich in observations and intuition that are still valid.

\\\\\\\ This is the best young Sassicaia in years. It\\\\\\\'s the new 1988, which was great, and sometimes better than the legendary 1985. What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish. So beautiful now but will be much better in 2015. Owner Niccolo Incisa della Rocchetta says that Sassicaia is always great in years that end with eight: 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008.\\\\\\\
