"Le Pergole Torte" by Montevertine is a Tuscan excellence, an Italian monument and one of the stars of the world wine scene. In simple terms, it is a liquid emotion that with its elegance, its nobility and its precision has inspired and has been an example for many Italian producers and beyond. We are located in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, more precisely in Radda, the home par excellence of Sangiovese. Since 1981 the Montervertine winery has left the specification because it did not want to follow the recipe set by the consortium, but to continue producing with its traditional method, out of the fashions and obligations of the market.
As with the best adventures, everything was born in an unexpected way: it was almost a hobby for Sergio Manetti, a production intended for friends and customers. Then, at Vinitaly, the truth: that wine was something extraordinary. A few years later, the inevitable consequence of a true and powerful passion, Sergio Manetti decided to devote himself to the activity of winegrower, triggering a path of growth and quality, which is still carried out today by his son. Since 1982 the labels have been designed by the artist Alberto Manfredi, a longtime friend of Sergio, who liked to depict stylized, simple and attractive faces of ladies with simple brushstrokes. Following his death, his drawings preserved in the old archives are used to remember him every year.
The Toscana Rosso “Le Pergole Torte” comes from Sangiovese vineyards of 2.5 hectares, out of the total 18 owned by the winery. Its long road begins in the vineyard, where a very close selection of the grapes is made, and continues with fermentation, first alcoholic and then malolactic, in concrete tanks. The aging phase is tripartite: it begins in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months, follows in Allier barriques for another 12 months and ends with 6 months of rest in the bottle.
The “Le Pergole Torte” wine is a complex and stratified Sangiovese. It lights up in the glass with its noble ruby red mantle, it shines like a precious stone. The bouquet immediately captivates for its complexity and olfactory elegance: red fruit, noble spices, cocoa, coffee on a mineral and graphite background. An aristocratic wine, which stands out in the mouth for its refined structure. Elegance versus power, freshness versus softness in a match without winners with an interminable ending!
