Montevertine Pergole Torte 2001

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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 is winery, Montevertine's, top wine. This is an optimal vintage, in large format, that's made for decades of aging. This ages for the first 6 months in French oak barrique (100% Allier, of which 1/4th new), and then is racked into medium-size Slavonia oak casks (12 and 7,5 Hl) for 18 months before bottling.
