Tenuta di Tavignano

A family estate acquired in the seventies by Stefano Aymerich and wife Beatrice Lucangeli. Travignano 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. Verdicchio is their focus and the majority of their production but they also grow small portions of Montepulciano and Sangiovese which are used in the production of their Rosso Piceno.


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. Though they are not certified at current, in 2015 they started the conversion process to Organic agriculture and hope to achieve official certification in the near future.

(Misco Riserva, 2015) "Bright straw. Musky aromas of ripe yellow fruit, pepper, dry herbs and balsamic oils. Then large, ripe and saline, offering fleshy orchard fruit and savory flavors that linger nicely. A rather tactile Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi that finishes long and lemony but with repeating herbal notes. The Misco is made from a single vineyard characterized by soils that are slightly richer in clay than the other estate vineyards; the vines are south-facing and roughly 20 years old. (“Misco” is the ancient name of the nearby Musone river.)" 92 points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media (February 2018)




(Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 'Villa Torre', 2016 )"Bartlett pear and Spanish broom aromas emerge from this wine. The savory palate delivers pink grapefruit, yellow peach and pineapple flavors set against crisp acidity. It closes on an almond note.
