The winemakers of Montevertine have always sought to make wines of place, wines that were true to where they were from, something in common with nearly all great wines. These are vines that are harvested by hand, and never feel the harsh touch of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Its high-altitude vineyards are some of the best in the region, some would say they are the very best. The wines themselves offer a complexity that is difficult to believe, and yet portray simple elements of the stone and earth of their home, a characteristic certainly of great Italian wine. Their winery dwells between Florence and Sienna, just north of Radda in Chianti.
Le Pergole Torte is a rare collaboration between rusticity and finesse, and brings layer upon layer of flavor that reminds us why we drink wine. The wine is only produced in outstanding vintages from the Sangiovese variety. Ageing is meticulously completed between both barrique and Slavonian oak.
