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

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." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 10, Ian D'Agata
