Winemaker Notes

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.

James Suckling
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.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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. Today, the 2008 doesn't appear to be one of the legendary vintages of Pergole Torte, but in exchange the wine will offer very fine drinking upon release. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028.

Montevertine, Italy
Montevertine Winery Image
Montevertine lies within the heart of the Chianti hills, in the community of Radda at an altitude of 425 m above sea level. Documents show that the site has been dwelled since the 11th century. Traces of the original construction, which undoubtedly was of defensive nature and which later on had been converted to a rural housing, are still preserved.

In 1967, Sergio Manetti, at that time a manufacturer of steel products, bought Montevertine as a holiday house. He restored the house and returned it to its original dwelling destination, and right from the beginning, he planted two hectares of wine and he set up a small cellar. The idea was to produce some wine for friends and customers. The first vintage produced, 1971, was more than decent and Sergio Manetti decided to present some bottles at Italy's leading wine show, Vinitaly in Verona, via the Chamber of Commerce of Siena. That was an immediate success and Mr. Manetti was so enthusiastic about it that only a few years later he decided to give up his main former activity, in order to dedicate all his efforts exclusively to winemaking. New vineyards were planted, new cellars installed, and that activity has been continued without any interruption. The expansion of our enterprise has been going on until this very moment.

After Sergio Manetti had passed away in November 2000, the management of the vineyard is now in the hands of his son Martino Manetti, who is assisted by Bruno Bini, born in Montevertine and an in-depth expert of the zone and the soil. Giulio Gambelli, the expert wine taster, is our consultant and offers his assistance during the production of the vines.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
