Podere 414 was the plot number allocated to this piece of land by in the
1960's, during the division and redistribution of much of the Maremma to
farmers. These farmers inherited totally wild and uncontaminated lands composed
mainly of forests and pastures and adopted an almost exclusively subsistence
farming model. In 1998 Simone, together with wife Mara, purchased the plot known
as 414 and set about planting the varieties most suitable to the character of
Maremma to produce a wine that is indisputably Mediterranean in character
(generous in colour, aroma and body) without losing its elegance.
