Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2014

The prestige wine of Montevertine is only produced in outstanding vintages. This ultimate wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 18 months and then racked into small French oak (Allier) barrels for the final six month stage of its elevage. It is produced primarily from a two hectare vineyard planted in 1968 exclusively to Sangiovese vines with a north-northeast exposure.94 points, Antonio Galloni93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2012 Le Pergole Torte is brilliant. In fact, this is one of the best showings of the 2012 that I can recall. The flavors are bright, focused and pulsing with energy. Because of its mid-weight structure and not overly complex personality, the 2012 looks like it will start drinking well sooner rather than later. Even today, the 2012 is extremely beautiful. This is a terrific showing for the 2012." 94 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous"Uneven ripening resulted in lower yields in this vintage. Usually 24,000 bottles of Le Pergole Torte are produced, but the 2012 Le Pergole Torte totaled a mere 16,000 bottles. Martino Manetti estimates that he had to throw away 30% of his grapes. That painful sacrifice yielded very good results in terms of the overall quality of this wine. This is a fluid and complex wine that is already showing signs of a slow and steady evolution. The bouquet is dark and penetrating with dark cherry, spice and red rose petal. Its not the best edition of this celebrated wine, but Le Pergole Torte remains one of the best wines made in this difficult vintage." 93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
