From a certified organic vineyard in the Marche. Owned by the niece of one of the founders. The nose shows a minerality towards wet stones, citrus, and a light saline edge. The palate has a light textural note here with zingy acid and a flavor set of clean minerals, citrus and a light white nectarine. D&M Tasting Notes

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, July 2018
Tenuta di Tavignano is in the area of Cingoli (province of Macerata). The property is on hills that dominate the valleys of the Esino and Musone rivers, on one side one can see the San Vicino mountain and on the other side the Adriatic sea and the Conero Riviera. The vineyards stand in the heart of the “Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC Classico” and of the “Rosso Piceno DOC ” appellations.
The climatic and soil conditions - such as ideal altitude, exposure, day/night temperature range, soft slopes, absence of fog and optimal northern ventilation - create a perfect microclimate for a low environmental impact viticulture. The estate is now in the conversion phase to be certified organic.
The soils composition - medium texture characterized by marly-calcareous rocks – gives a characteristic mineral and sapid flavour to the wines.
Verdicchio Classico Superiore “Misco” and “Misco Riserva” are the classic white wines of the estate while Rosso Piceno “Libenter” is the classic red wine produced with Montepulciano, Sangiovese and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon.
All the white wines mature in stainless steel vats, whereas the reds mature in fine oak barrels.
In the early nineties the owners Stefano Aymerich di Laconi and Beatrice Lucangeli (who sadly left us a few years ago) decided to plant new vineyards of Verdicchio grapes, with the aim to focus on high quality white wines with a great personality and which could be suitable for ageing.
