An unoaked but complex Chardonnay from Emilia-Romagna, Italy. It is rounded with a buttery note and creamy texture. The flavours of ripe orange and baked apple are long and satisfying – this is a white that demands food, especially chicken, salmon or a rich parmesan risotto.
The Wickhams' Garden of Italy range comes from the Montaia vineyard in the Cesena foothills of Emilia-Romagna, just a few miles inland from the Adriatic. With a constant sea breeze, the microclimate is ideal for winegrowing.
Each bottle has a label created by Tonino Guerra.Tonino Guerra was a great appreciator of Montaia wines, and we’re proud to have some of his works on the labels of this selection.
Guerra’s reputation as poet, director, scriptwriter, painter, writer and thinker is intimately connected with the traditions of his native Romagna. Tonino Guerra’s Romagna is a Romagna where it’s quality, never quantity, that counts: where the frontiers between tradition, poetry and art are erased. These same values are embodied in Montaia wines.
