Making wine is not easy, it is an art. Especially when it is as natural as ours. 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 oriented to organic farming, 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 connotation unique Passerina, Pecorino, Vermentino, Malvasia, Pinot, Moscato, Merlot, Montepulciano, Sangiovese, are the grapes we use in our wines, for an average annual production of 25000 bottles .
We vinify with the use of steel vats, terracotta and wood, with the desire to discover and enhance all the aromatic range of cultivated vines.

WINES IN AMPHORA - The use of terracotta vessels to contain 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 was then spread among all the populations of the ancient world, but it was lost in the Middle Ages, supplanted by the wooden barrel and the barrique. Today it is rediscovered by Castrum Morisci, which declines its use to enhance its vines and grapes.

Within these containers, with long maceration of the skins, we are able to extract all the complexity of specific hints and aromas from the grapes. the wine refines in amphora again, to find the aromas and aromas that make it unique, thanks to the extraordinary thermal insulation and micro-oxygenation due to the porosity of the terracotta.
Padreterno, Testamozza and Gallicano, the names of wines in amphora, which are inspired by the name of the districts of Moresco or notions in the treaty on agriculture "De Re Rustica" written by the Latin author Lucio Giunio Moderato Columella in the first century. A.D
