A breathtaking view offers itself here from the "Balcony of the Marches"A few kilometres as the crow flies from the coast near the famous historic port of Ancona. The Marches, a region with centuries of history, once fiercely contested, today wrongly underestimated. The area around Jesi and Cingoli was already populated in the 5th millennium B.C. and was a sought-after wine and olive growing area under the Romans. Even a pope came from here, Pius VIII. No wonder that a couple of old Italian noble families took care of this area. At the beginning of the 1990s Contessa Beatrice Lucangeli and Conte Stefano Aymerich di Laconi began to develop the Tenuta di Tavignano into a high-quality winery. High up, between two mountains that seem to be divided by the river Esino, the cultivated vineyards lie on the hills crossed by clay marl and limestone. The constant breeze dries the vineyards early, the temperature differences between day and night favour the fruit development.
The region is also called Verdicchio's home. And the mineral white wines with the designation Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore DOC are the flagship of the Tenuta di Tavignano. "Misco" and "Misco Riserva" have almost a subscription to the highest awards that Italian wine guides have to award. Also in 2017, there were the coveted "tre bicchieri" of the Gambero Rosso- in addition, the "Misco" Verdicchio 2015 with the title "best white wine of Italy" ennobled.
Conte Stefano Aymerich di Laconi, or the "Engineer"As the great-great-great grandson of the Sardinian viceroy is called here at his own request, he likes to explain why his Verdicchio is so appreciated. It is not only microclimate and terroir, but also the restriction in the vineyard. Only a maximum of 3,000 vines in cordon education are planted here, because both Guyot education and a higher vine density, which are common in modern vineyards, are counterproductive for Verdicchio. He also uses autochthonous grape varieties (Montepulciano and Sangiovese) for the red wine, only a mini percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon is used for the cuvée of his Rosso Piceno. Regional specialities, such as the fragrant Pecorino or the spicy Passerina, two little-known regional white wines, as well as the red speciality Barbarossa from the grape variety Lacrima di Morro d’Alba complete the exclusive program.
