The Verdicchio Ambrosia Vignamato is made of 100% of Verdicchio grapes sourced on the hills of the castles of Jesi (San Paolo di Jesi), in the Marche region, in the most ancient area defined as Classical. The vineyards to produce the Verdicchio Ambrosia Vignamato are located at an altitude of250m above the sea level, facing north-east. The harvest is manual in boxes, first and second ten days of October, the grapes go under soft pressing, and ferment in steel and barrique. The wine mature for 60% in stainless steel tanks, 40% in barriques for 12-14 months and then age 6 months in the bottle.
The origins of the Vignamato farm date back to the late 1940s when Umberto Ceci bought a small plot of land in S. Paolo di Jesi in the Contrada Battinebbia dedicated to the production of Verdicchio grapes. At the beginning of the ’50s the land was assigned to Amato and his wife Maria, passionate winemakers and in the farmhouse of the farm bought started the production and marketing of the wines produced.
Their experience and the great passion for the vineyards, cared for to guarantee the best quality of the grapes for its wines, involve in this project the son Maurizio and his wife Serenella. Convinced that in order to grow and improve we must be open to change, in 1992 they create a new production project: “Vignamato”. The company accelerates the pace on the road of extreme quality, in a project that focuses on the care of the details giving rise to choices that pursue increasingly advanced objectives in an exemplary symbiosis between the best traditions and the most modern technologies.
Thanks to the use of state-of-the-art equipment, innovative technologies and the practice of an eco-compatible agriculture, the Vignamato Agricultural Company today also “Fattoria Didattica” has developed a production distinguished by high quality wines, without ever abandoning its origins and strong roots in traditions. And for the future? Alessandra and Andrea have already joined the company, Francesco is doing a full immersion in the family business.
