"Off the charts gorgeous"
2017 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte

Posted by Ian McFadden

We've been waiting for the 2017 Pergole Torte for some time.

The 2017 Montevertine was so impressive that we were really excited for the Pergole Torte. It's simply epic. 

For Montevertine, 2017 is an extreme vintage. It was a warm year with seriously reduced yields. This is a jam-packed, grandly scaled vintage for Montevertine. Galloni calls the vintage at Montevertine "some of the most viscerally thrilling, breathtaking wines I have ever tasted here, or anywhere, for that matter."

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 incisive class and intricate composition. In vintages like 2017, Pergole Torte assumes jaw-dropping dimensions.

The 2017 is layered and finessed with incredible power and lift. It's difficult not to be wowed by the wine's balance. You get a suave texture with amazing precision. It is beautifully compelling in its regal stature. 

When it comes to Sangiovese, Pergole Torte stands alone for how deeply complex and graceful it is. 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." I'm very happy to offer this thrilling Pergole Torte.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2017 Le Pergole Torte is a wine of pure and total sensuality. I imagine the 2017 is one of those wines that will always offer tremendous pleasure. Pliant and inviting, with soft, voluptuous curves, the 2017 is off the charts gorgeous. Layers of deep Sangiovese fruit gradually reveal themselves with air. The flavors are so intense but also so primary. I wouldn't touch a bottle before age ten. Readers lucky enough to find the 2017 should not hesitate, as it is magnificent. I can't imagine anyone who loves Le Pergole Torte not wanting a good supply of the 2017 in the cellar. The 2017 has come together beautifully over the last year."
