Notes from Skurnik:
"At the top of a hill in Cingoli, in Le Marche, between the Apennine mountains and the Adriatic sea, stands Tenuta di Tavignano. Since the 1990’s, owners Stefano Aymerich di Laconi and his wife Beatrice Lucangeli have devoted themselves full measure to the production of high-quality wines based on the region’s most noble grape: Verdicchio. They replanted their vineyards and reinvested in the uniqueness of Castello di Jesi Classico DOC. And make no mistake, the appellation is worth your attention – especially in the Classico district, where centuries of cultivation pre-date the boom of quantity over quality in one of Italy’s most historic DOCs, founded in 1968!"
