"In a word: superb" - 2015 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte

Posted by Ian McFadden

Pergole Torte is one of Italy's greats. For most of you, that's hardly news.

Pergole Torte has been a fixture at Crush since day one.

Few wines are so nuanced and complicated that the more you taste them the more deeply you become obsessed with them. For us, Pergole Torte is one of those wines. There's something about its class and incisiveness that we find endlessly fascinating.

Montevertine is in Radda, one of the coolest, highest-altitude spots in the Chianti Classico zone. It is here, and in Montevertine's hands, that Sangiovese reaches an unparalleled level of nobility.

When it comes to Sangiovese, Pergole Torte stands alone for how deeply complex and graceful it is. It's fairly subtle, but mind-blowing nonetheless. As Antonio Galloni writes, "Le Pergole Torte isn’t a great Tuscan or Italian wine. It is simply one of the world’s elite wines."

The 2015 vintage is a deep and powerful vintage. The 2015 Pergole Torte dazzles with how it combines ripeness and concentration with drive, purity and lift. As always, it offers up a beguiling set of aromatics with incredibly expressive notes of red fruits, herbs, spice and floral notes.

Needless to say, you should expect the 2015 to age really well. Before wrapping up, I'll just warn you that I expect this to sell out very quickly.
