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.

Montevertine Rosso 2011 750ml
A blend of 90 percent Sangiovese with the rest composed of Colorino and Canaiolo, the Montevertine Rosso derives mostly from a single six-acre south-southwest facing vineyard planted in 1982. There’s no question that 2011 was a warm vintage, but the altitudes of Montevertine’s vineyards and the careful attention of its owner-winemaker, Martino Manetti, keep the wines balanced and fresh. Montevertine has shown its expertise vintage after vintage, and the ’11 Rosso offers juicy berries, fresh-cut herbs, a thrum of earth and espresso, and the kind of precise balance that has made this estate a collector staple.

Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2004
Le Pergole Torte represents one of the most important expressions of pure Sangiovese that Toscana has to offer. The 2004 vintage is a wine of longevity that will unquestionably exceed many of the sophisticated wines of Montalcino. This wine is all about finesse, elegance, complexity and, most importantly, patience. The flavor profile in its youth is subtle, as it is intended to be. Therefore some critics often miss the hidden beauty in this wine�it is not in your face, internationally styled, or about instant gratification. The high altitude of the vines, which range between 400 and 500 meters, lends to the structure and aromatics of this classically styled wine. Crafted exclusively in vintages commensurate with its breeding (its limited case production average 1,500 bottles), Le Pergole Torte undergoes an extensive maceration period ranging from 25 to 30 days and is aged in both barrique and Slavonian oak for a period of 18 to 24 months. Though this wine requires another ten years of cellaring, it will undoubtedly be one of the greats of the vintage.
