Montevertine Le Pergole Torte Sangiovese 2004

$359

Montevertine's Le Pergole Torte is the benchmark for the heights that Chianti Classico can achieve. Located in Radda, Montevertine estate's cooler microclimate helps explain why this is always the most ethereal Sangiovese of the region. For us, it calls to mind the grace commonly found in the Burgundies of Chambolle-Musigny. 2004 is one of the epic vintages of the last 25 years in Tuscany, and now at just over a decade this bottle has reached the next gear. Profound Sangiovese!

Didn't open up at all. Already double decant.

Pleasurable, elegant, stylish, but not a stunner. Fruit is receding, and elevage stamp still present. Many Sangiovese Grosso wines outperform this bottle for half the price.

Color is plenty youthful and elegant with a ruby red that gets lighter pink on the edges. The nose is a mix of primary and tertiary, with cherry, pomegranate, sandalwood, earthy forest floor and a woodsy mushroom. The palate was pure silk and refined velvety tannin, finishing long and fresh with classic bright Tuscan acidity. If you have it it's great but has legs for another 15 years easy. #montevertine #tuscany #sangiovese

Coming along nicely. The barrique has receded enough that you can enjoy the impressive structure and the nuances of the fruit. Really quite exceptional.
