The classic Montevertine style is marked by elegance and complexity. Le Pergole Torte is only produced in outstanding vintages, made with highly selected Sangioveto grapes.
"Blackberry and minerals with hints of toasted oak on the nose. Full body, with silky tannins and a fruity finish. Solid and tight right now. "
"The 2008 Le Pergole Torte (Sangiovese) is more expressive in its bouquet than the Montevertine, but lacks some of that wine's body. Hard candy, sweet red berries, flowers and spices are some of the notes that emerge from this unusually open, accessible Pergole Torte.
