Le Pergole Torte Montevertine 2007

Azienda Agricola Montevertine:
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.

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. Our wine-making procedure is extremely traditional and it has been never been varied since the very first vintage. The grapes are harvested by hand and then fermented in glazed cement vats, without temperature control, and the must is topped up twice daily in order to keep the top marc moist and to obtain a slow extraction of the tannins from the skins. After the racking off, the malolactic fermentation is also carried out using cement vats. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, our wines are stored in wooden barrels over a period of approximately two years.The wines will never be filtered and the topping-up method, without any pumps, is used for the bottling. For the ageing of our wines we use oak barrels from Slavonia with a 5.5 to 18 hectolitre capacity and 225 litre Allier casks. Read less

Musky and deeply earthy on the nose with huge, yet elegant, notes of leather and black cherry and layers of minerals, spice, flowers, rain water, and subtle tones of white pepper, pickled green tomatoes, and oak. Fresh and cool on entry with a nice forward rush of green watermelon rind set of my notes or rare beef and stemminess. This is textbook Sangiovese, tense and nervous with plump, ripe fruit set against astringent tannins and zesty acids. The finish is long if slow to build but time in the glass allows this to fill out well. Still very young but a wine that is already showing it’s grand potential. 93pts

A little bit of old wood and charcoal greets the nose and then pulls back to reveal subtle complex perfumes of ripe fruit, and spicy black pepper and licorice nuanced tones. The minerality here is striking with an almost steely note lurking under the cherry fruit. In the mouth this exhibits superb, fine tannins and sweet, transparent and precise fruit all in a silky package. The feel of this wine is so fresh and ripe and even the tannins are sweet, allowing the spicy, tarry, coriander tinged notes to set off the fruit. The finish is long and has a savory, bittersweet cocoa, incipient porcini edge to it. Grand wine indeed and one that will continue to benefit from time n the cellar. 94pts

Big, intense aromatic that lack some freshness are decidedly in the earthy, leather end of the spectrum with nice mineral tones and a toasty edge to the dark but somewhat anonymous fruit. Big and soft in the mouth with good acids that highlight the core of very ripe, dark, earthy dried fruit tones. The tannins appear on the backend and lead into the finish, which shows nice, astringent cherry pit tones. This is a fine wine but it lacks the clarity and definition of the best vintages. 89pts

The nose started out quick slowly with notes of cooked red fruits, dusty earthy tones and fresh leather notes. This may very well have just been closed but it wasn’t giving much this evening On the palate this is shows a lack of depth married to a rather aggressive structure. The mid-palate reveals some nice, spicy red currant fruit but lacks detail. The feel of the wine is very smooth, and while there is adequate acidity, the wine lacks a certain amount of vibrancy. 88pts

Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Rather evolved on the nose but giving up it’s all this evening with a fine array of dried spices, earth, sour meat, sour wild berry, and cake batter tones. A hint of VA gives this a nice bit of lift and adds to the leathery, gamy suggestions on the nose. In the mouth this is velvety and rich with a green tone to strawberry and wild raspberry fruit. On the mid-palate there is a fine, refreshing, candied watermelon rind note that leads to a vibrant finish that is driven by the great acids of this wine. The finish really gains length with air and shows wonderful spice tones and red currant fruit, which remains taut and focused. A wine that is at peak, or perhaps just past peak but really very fine. 92pts

This bottle most likely saw some excessive heat along the way as evidenced by the brothy notes on the nose and the seaweed edge to the fruit but it still showed some interest. The fruit was fresh yet dark with notes of black raspberries, and the palate was lovely with resolved tannins and good acids supporting the fruit which seemed ripe yet transparent. Nice typical notes of mineral and green anise seed made an appearance. Intact bottles of this should be excellent.

Still showing excellent fresh, wild cherry fruit on the nose with a strong underlay of tobacco and almond skins and top notes of smoke and prosciutto. On the palate this is fresh and precise with every element fading in harmony. That harmony extends throughout the mouth and into the finish making this one of the most enjoyable wines of the night. There’s great strawberry fruit on the mid-palate that exhibits a wonderful combination of sweetness and transparency. Everything just clicks into place with this wine. A great bottle of a fully mature wine. 92pts

Great depth of fruit. All components, acid, fruit, tannin are big and balanced in such a way that they curb one another. Still plenty of room for integration. Full and complete. Dark rich black cherry, and blackberry with aromatic cedar and scorched earth. Long finish. There are so many outstanding wines from Montevertine, and this one is noteworthy among them.

popped and poured. this is drinking as well as it possibly can right now- classic tuscan nose of cherries, dried rosemary and some pine. The fruit on the palate has a wonderful sweetness to it- very elegant and light on its feet. terrific wine.

The 2009 Le Pergole Torte is flat-out great. Layers of fruit wrap around the palate in this flashy, seductive Pergole Torte. There are no hard edges to be found. Sweet red cherries, roses, spices and mint are layered into the silky, radiant finish. T... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Le Pergole Torte Toscana IGT - 2007 - Montevertine: Le Pergole Torte Toscana IGT - 2007 - Rotwein von MontevertineDer sortenreine Rotwein aus besonders ausgelesenen Trauben der Sangiovese-Rebe leuchtet dunkelrubinrot und verändert sich mit zunehmendem Alter in einen warmen Granat-Ton. Im Bukett ist er sowohl kraftvoll als auch elegant. Es eröffnen sich lang anhaltende Aromen von Veilchen und Himbeeren, Gewürzen wie Vanille und Zimt. Im Geschmack ist er voll, mit sehr viel Körper und Persönlichkeit. Lebendig, aber dennoch weich und warm.Der Ausbau erfolgte 18 Monate in slavonischer Eiche und anschließend 6 Monate in Allier-Barrique. Der Le Pergole Torte 2007 ist ein Wein, der erst am Anfang steht, und vermutlich in etwa fünf Jahren bei guter Lagerung sein Maximum erreicht. Da die Produktion gering, die Nachfrage aber groß ist, wird er schon bald vom Markt verschwunden sein. Die empfohlene Serviertemperatur liegt bei 17 - 18 °C als idealer Begleiter zu gebratenem roten und weißen Fleisch, Geflügel, Wildgeflügel, Reh und Hirsch.Weingut: MontevertineLand: ItalienRegion: ToskanaRebsorte: SangioveseInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,55 g/lFassreife: 18/6 Monate im Barrique Rotwein > Italien > Toskana

"(100% sangiovese; 13% alcohol) Deep, full red. Complex, gorgeous nose melds ripe red cherry, tobacco, iron, cinnamon and a floral element. Suave and bright, but fatter and deeper than the Montevertine, with perfectly integrated acidity to buffer its voluptuous texture and captivating flavors of ripe red cherry, spicy plum, licorice and underbrush. Finishes broad, with compellingly mouthcoating tannins and outstanding length. A great wine and another example of the incredible heights sangiovese can achieve in the right hands and in the right terroirs, such as Radda, where Montevertine is located."

Named after the meager 2-hectare vineyard from which it comes, Le Pergole Torte has one of the coolest microclimates in the region, giving the wine a shivering energy, a precision to balance the wine's obvious power. If there is truly mindblowing clarity to the wine, an articulation of nuance - dark berry fruit, dried cherry notes, smoke, gravel - make no mistake, Le Pergole Torte is meant to age.
