About the winemakersPodere 414
Tuscany | Maremma
Behind Podere 414 is Maurizio Castelli, an oenologist of great importance for Italian viticulture. A successful consultant, decisively involved in the development of Supertuscans and the modernization of Italian vineyards and wineries.
For his own project, his dream of an integrated farm, run according to biodynamic principles, with viticulture, cereals and livestock breeding, the agricultural engineer Castelli, who holds a doctorate in agricultural engineering, bought a farm of approx. 30 hectares in an excellent location. In Podere 414 in the DOC Morellino di Scansano, Simone Castelli, Maurizio's son, has so far planted 11 hectares of wine. The oldest vines carry in the seventh year. Simone, like his father, studied at the University of Florence and today, together with his wife Maja, takes care of the new winery. The vineyards are very modern, the planting density is very high with 6800 vines per hectare, the average yield is low with 40 hectolitres per hectare. About 85 percent of the vineyards are planted with Sangiovese, the rest with Ciliegiolo, Alicante and Colorino.
Only a single wine is produced, a 'Morellino di Scansano' and since Maurizio Castelli hates fantasy names and is only interested in quality, he took a simple but original path in naming the estate and its wine. 414 - this is the number of the area in the cadastre of the region. SUPERIORE.DE
