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

In the hills of Radda in Tuscany at an altitude of 1,200 feet is the tiny Montevertine Estate. Producing outstanding wines for decades, Le Pergole Torte is their most celebrated. Made from a very special select clone of Sangiovese and aged in Allier oak barrels this 2006 scored 96 points in the Wine Advocate who said. "What a pleasure it is to taste the 2006 Le Pergole Torte now that it is in bottle. The wine reveals superior density and richness in an especially generous style for this wine. Notes of smoke, licorice, leather and underbrush develop with air, adding layers of complexity to the dark red fruit. Today the tannins are a bit on the firm side as is typically the case when this wine is young, but it is impossible not to admire the 2006 Pergole Torte for its superb purity. The heat of the vintage has given the fruit in these high altitude vineyards a level of ripeness and depth that is unusual, all while maintaining the classic sense of structure that defines the best Pergole Tortes. Run, don’t walk?.this is breathtaking juice no one who loves Italian wine will want to be without." Very Limited!!

For pure and unparalleled expression of the Sangiovese grape, look no further than Montevertine, an estate that gives new meaning to the word "Supertuscan." Aged 2 years in large barrels, this cuvée is almost all Sangiovese with a miniscule addition of Colorino. Concentrated and brooding in its youth, the wine will unfold spectacularly over time.
