About This Wine
The Morellino di Scansano from Podere 414 is focused on being an honest representation of the terroir. A full-bodied wine, it smells wild yet mellowed by the influence of the barrel which imparts a beautiful spice.
An intense red wine, it's fruity and spicy on the nose with notes of ripe red fruit, vanilla, and liquorice. More of the same on the palate, which is fresh, smooth, and fruity, and well balanced.
Farmed organically, this is a true Italian terroir wine.
About Podere 414
During the agrarian reform in 1960s Italy, families were given land which was assigned by plot numbers, hence the name Podere 414, indicating the block of land.
These families inherited totally wild and uncontaminated lands and they adopted a subsistence farming model to honour the traditions of the region.
In 1998 Simone Castelli, together with wife Mara, purchased the plot and set about planting the varieties most suitable to the character of Maremma.
Farming their vineyards organically, they aim to produce wines that are truly reflective of their site.
