A Wonderful Review of our Chardonnay di Montemaggio IGT 2018
WINE HEAVEN!!! An outstanding Chardonnay from an outstanding winery at an outstanding price.
We are bursting with happiness when reading these words in a review made by Andy Kelly of the blog Get Your Cork Out in the United Kingdom. Andy Kelly is based in Liverpool, England and together with Dane Brooks he reviews and writes thoughts about wines that they taste.
Some months ago, Andy ordered our Chardonnay di Montemaggio IGT 2018 via Amazone Prime in the UK and shortly after he wrote a fantastic review in the article Chardonnay di MonteMaggio 2018. Our Chardonnay di Montemaggio is a white wine that we only produce very few bottles of each year and it is not the first wine perhaps that you associate with Fattoria di Montemaggio. We are more known for our Chianti Classico wines and IGT wines in the Supertuscan style.
The Chardonnay di Montemaggio IGT, however, is not a wine standing in the shadow of the others. It is indeed a Chardonnay wine with its very own character that is very much influenced by the special terroir in the Radda area. The minerality, freshness, and good acidity is combined with smoothness and floral as well as fruity notes and a buttery taste.
In fact, Andy writes that
Initially, I got passionfruit accompanied with the slightest hints of toasty and bready notes as it went down. The butter really comes through here too, and, accompanied by solid notes of honey, meant that I was bowled over by its velvety mouthfeel.
…he continues by saying
Every gulp left me wanting more and with every glass new flavours would emerge.
Andy indeed compares our Chardonnay to a French Chardonnay wine
This is seriously good Chardonnay which reminded me of a good quality Meursault or even Puligny-Montrachet.
…stressing also how it feels like an older vintage of Chardonnay
It’s colour, creaminess and toasty notes confused me because I felt like I was tasting an aged chardonnay so you can imagine my surprise when I realised it was barely a year old.
Andy ends his beautiful review of our Chardonnay di Montemaggio IGT with
So bravo MonteMaggio, you have created an outstanding Chadonnay at an outstanding price. All that’s left for me to do is to book my flights to Florence and come and visit your winery to sample some more outstanding wine. See you in the Spring!
We cannot thank you enough Andy for this brilliant review of our Chardonnay di Montemaggio IGT. We are waiting for you at Fattoria di Montemaggio next year whenever you have time to come. We cannot wait to show you our estate and taste all our wines together.
