Making wine is not easy, it is an art, especially when it is natural. Territory, terracotta, fire and steel are our elements. We want to relive them in our traditions, taking the best and bringing it to today.

The farm, deeply organic oriented, extends over 7,5 hectares of vineyards among the rolling hills of the Marche hinterland at the foot of the medieval village of Moresco. The proximity of the sea and the particular terroir give the products an unmistakable unique connotation Passerina, Pecorino, Vermentino, Malvasia, Pinot, Moscato, Merlot, Montepulciano, Sangiovese, are the grapes that we use in our wines, for an average annual production of 25000 bottles .
We make wine with the use of wine vessels in steel, terracotta and wood, with the desire to discover and enhance all the aromatic range of cultivated vines.

Wines in amphora - The use of terracotta containers to hold the wine dates back to about 8000 years ago, when in the Transcaucasian area they were used to elaborate one of the first creations of human artifice. The use of terracotta then spread among all the populations of the ancient world, but was lost in the Middle Ages, supplanted by the wooden barrel and barrique. Today it is rediscovered by Castrum Morisci, who declines its use for the enhancement of its vines and grapes. Within these containers, with long maceration of the skins we are able to extract all the complexity of specific scents and aromas from the grapes. The wine refines again in amphora, to find the scents and aromas that make it unique, thanks to the extraordinary thermal insulation and micro-oxygenation due to the porosity of the terracotta.
The first winery in the Marche to produce wines with the Braille label for the blind and partially sighted.
