Tenuta di Tavignano

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. 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. From the 2019 vintage they are officially certified organic.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

(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)

(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. Drink through 2023.90 Points, Wine Enthusiast, Kerrin O’Keefe (January 2018)

"The hard work in the vineyard and the care in the vinification phase are constant in the team led by Ondine de la Feld.. Il Misco '16 smells of flowers, anise and white peach; the sip is long and continuous, harmonious, set on a high concept of drinkability and pleasure." Gambero Rosso 2018
