Il Soave Preview 2013- Origin, Style and Value

[…] From here, Sir, we shall view the whole valley: what you see is.

But if the sight is scarce to your eye let’s go down to a lower plane

gliding in a winged gallop to the crater where  time seethes.

                                                                                                             from Astolfo On The Moon by Ludovico Ariosto
