Description

The wine is made from 100% Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi grapes. After working organically for many years, Tavignano is officially certified from the 2019 vintage. The Verdicchio grapes are hand-harvested, and after a soft pressing of the grapes, fermentation takes place in stainless steel. The wine then spends a minimum period of two months refinement in bottle before release. Cream, preserved lemons, green herbs, a touch of earth – this could only be Italian. It’s an inviting, appetising, nose; it piques the senses and makes one wonder what’s for lunch. The palate is textured, with sunny, breezy acidity and a streak of lime on the mid palate that’s wonderfully summery. It works exceptionally well with light seafood dishes or white fish dishes.

Silvia says
“An area of Italy perhaps overlooked on occasion for its wines but I for one adore the characters of the Verdicchio and in general the wines of Marche. Some are oaked but this one is fermented and aged in stainless steel which highlights the fresh grassy, herbaceous notes that are very attractive. The wines always remain restrained but always pleasing.”

About the Domaine

A family estate acquired in 1975 by Stefano Aymerich and wife Beatrice Lucangeli. Tavignano consists of 30 hectares of vineyards located in a small town called Cingoli, in the heart of the Marche region. The denominations here are Verdicchio del Castelli di Jesi and Rosso Piceno. Cingoli has a perfect Verdicchio growing climate with good sun exposure from the South-East and ventilation from the cooling Northerly winds.
The estate has now been passed down to niece Ondine de la Feld, who like her Uncle and Aunt continues with the passion to produce quality Verdicchio in this region. Although for many years Stefano and Beatrice ran the estate with a conscious effort to minimise their environmental impact by using environmentally friendly vineyard techniques and management, one of Ondine’s first decisions when she took charge was to farm all their vineyards organically. From the 2019 vintage they are officially certified organic.
