Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2020


We have 6 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)

  • Land: Montevertine, situated in an historic hilltop hamlet near Radda in Chianti, has been evolving since the 11th century. With 18 hectares of vineyards divided into 9 parcels, the estate’s land is planted predominantly with Sangiovese, supported by smaller amounts of Colorino and Canaiolo. The region's soil, a mix of Albarese and Galestro, is ideal for nurturing the distinctive characteristics of these varieties. The vineyard follows organic practices to maintain health and sustainability.
  • Wine: The 2020 Le Pergole Torte represents the pinnacle of Montevertine's wine production, crafted exclusively in exceptional years. Originating from a special 2-hectare vineyard planted in 1968, this wine undergoes a detailed aging process—18 months in Slavonian oak followed by six months in French oak barrels from Allier. This method enhances the Sangiovese’s rich flavors, presenting a wine that, while not officially a Chianti Classico, embodies the true spirit and complexity of the region’s traditional wines.
  • People: Since its foundation in the late 1960s by Sergio Manetti as a retreat, Montevertine has grown into a renowned wine estate under the stewardship of his son Martino and Paolo Salvi, who continue to honor Sergio’s legacy. The estate left the Chianti Classico appellation in 1981 due to regulations which required Trebbiano to be part of the blend, and still to this day they do not use the appellation name despite the removal of that requirement since.

Tuscany, Italy is home to some of the world's most famous wines, including Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. The Sangiovese grape is the star of the region, creating bold and structured wines with notes of cherry and leather. In addition to the traditional wines, Tuscany is also known for its "Super Tuscans" - modern blends that incorporate non-traditional grapes and are often made along the coast.
