About the wine

From coastal vineyards in the Marche region of Italy, Tenuta di Tavignano has built a reputation for producing some of the best quality Verdicchio dei Castello di Jesi available. This organic dry white wine is typical Verdicchio in character, fresh citrus notes of lemon zest give way to white peach and a precise almond finish.

Costa Verde meaning green coast refers to coastal vineyards from which the grapes for this wine are from. Sustainability is a key focus for Tenuta di Tavignano, they farm their vineyards using eco-friendly practices and are certified organic. Tenuta di Tavignano Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Costa Verde is made from 100% Verdicchio grapes which are hand harvested, to preserve the quality of the fruit. The wine is vinified in a stainless steel tank where it refines for 2 months post-fermentation before bottling and release.

About the wine

A wonderful summer aperitif wine, you really get a sense of the coastal influence from the saline mineral character and freshness. It is also the perfect wine to accompany seafood, matching the zingy citrus fruits and minerality with fish or shellfish dishes; grilled prawns, spaghetti with clams, and fresh oysters, for example, make for a heavenly combination with this sustainable Italian Verdicchio wine.
