Montevertine

Le Pergole Torte was the first single vineyard Super-Tuscan to be made from 100% Sangiovese. Owner Sergio Manetti was thoroughly displeased with the on-going addition of “vitigni migliorativi”, or complementary grapes (e.g Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, etc.) to Sangiovese in an attempt to produce a more "international" wine with broader appeal. Manetti believed this implied that stand-alone Sangiovese wasn't good enough for top cuvees. Declaring Sangiovese second to none, he vowed never, ever to use other grapes in his red wines. So, he produced his last Chianti Classico in 1981 and became a Sangiovese purist with his first release of Le Pergole Torte. Sadly, Sergio passed away several years ago. His legend, however, lives on in his wines.
