Overview

The name “flower power” of our rosato derives from the famous espression of the poet Allen Ginsberg coined during the period of the “counterculture hippy” of the sixties. This wine finds it's natural habitat on the edge of a swimming pool, on the background of a barbecue among friends.The vintage of the rosè follows the harvest period of the first Sangiovese grapes, this year the starting day for this variety was the second week of september. Podere 414 is an estate that straddles a river in the western part of Tuscany towards the sea and near the town of Scansano. The soil is very stingy here and it is covered with large stones. The vines tunnel deep in search for nutrients and water. We can say that this is a classic Morellino and it speaks well of it provenance or terroir. Simone Castelli, the son of a very famous Tuscan oenologist from the 1970's and early 1980's, is the proprietor.
