@ItalyWineIcons @InfoSassicaia . I also accessed the Sassicaia 1968 tech sheet ( ) which states, " Vinification took place in two small open vats of oak, with a capacity of about 20 hectoliters each." 40 hl is about 5333 bottles, which is more accurate, Anderson or Tenuta San Guido?

@ItalyWineIcons @InfoSassicaia Well, I referenced it myself, being curious. P. 280 in Burton Anderson's Vino. 7300 bottles produced in 1968. When I sold the wine in the early 1980's we were offering it (wholesale) for US $28 to the trade.

@ItalyWineIcons @InfoSassicaia That sounds a bit high,considering the amount produced. Where can we reference this ?
