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.
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.
The Tavignano Verdicchio has fresh fruit aromas such as white peach and floral notes on the nose. On the palate it shows typicity with citrus fruit, stone fruit and a slight bitter almond aftertaste.
