Description Sub Region Producer Notes
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.
