Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2015 Le Pergole Torte is a 100% expression of Sangiovese sourced from the estate's oldest vines (between 30 and 50 years old). Like the other wines from Montevertine, Le Pergole Torte sees both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in cement, and the wine later ages in new oak barrels for 12 to 18 months depending on the vintage. After that first phase in barrique, it goes into large botte to complete its integration. This gorgeous vintage opens to a deep, dark appearance with a velvety presentation of dark fruit and black cherry flavors. The wine's textural richness is ultimately what sets this fantastic vintage apart.

Very very Chianti-Classico-like wine is not Chianti Classico!?

MONTEVERTINE and MONTEVERTINE's LE PERGOLE TORTE are the best Sangiovese from Radda in Chianti. Although its taste embodies terroir of Chianti Classico and Sangiovese, those wines are not classified as DOCG Chianti Classico.

Another Super Tuscan?

Tignanello, Sassicaia, and Ornallaia are well known as an original Super Tuscan which are made of Bordeaux grape varieties such as Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot, or blend of Sangiovese and Bordeaux grapes. Indeed, these wines are out of criteria of DOC Italian wines in 80's.

On the other hand, MONTEVERTINE and LE PERGOLE TORTE are made from Sangiovese in Radda in Chianti. Why they are not DOCG Chianti Classico? Because when they started producing wine, they could not produce Chianti by red grapes only(10% of blending of white grapes was must for Chianti wine). However Sergio Manetti had recognized great potential of Sangiovese and he was convinced that the wine could be better by only red grapes. So he left from Consorzio Vino Chianti and went his own way. MONTEVERTINE created another type of Super Tuscan which is made from 100% Sangiovese.

In 1996, the DOC regulation had been changed. Chianti Classico obtained its DOCG individually, and wineries were allowed to produce Chianti Classico by only red grapes or 100% Sangiovese. But MONTEVERTINE didn't come back to DOCG Chianti Classico.

We can see the spirits of independency and non-compromise in wine of MONTEVERTINE. These wines are not easy-going and they are a bit stubborn and delicate. However, we would say drinking best condition of MONTEVERTINE is something special in our life.
