Montevertine Pergole Torte 1999

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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

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.

Wine Spectator ReviewIntense aromas of plums, berries and fresh cedar. Full-bodied, with ripe and soft fruit, velvety tannins and a long, succulent finish. A decadent yet balanced red. Best from 2003 through 2008.
