Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2007
The 2007 Le Pergole Torte (Sangiovese) is a rock star wine, and then some. The sheer integrity and purity of the fruit is breathtaking, as is frankly everything about this wine. Wonderfully rich, deep and seductive, the 2007 Pergole Torte shows gorgeous clarity and polish, stunning aromatics and the finest of tannins. It needs time to develop the breadth of its full potential but is strikingly beautiful even at this admittedly early stage. The 2007 Pergole Torte shows the heights Sangiovese can reach. It will give even the finest Grand Cru Burgundies a run for their money. Simply put, the 2007 is a wonderful counterpart to the profound and much firmer 2006. It is a must-have bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2032.
A wine that needs time to show what it has. Starts off slowly, then develops on the palate. Full and powerful. Like a top Brunello. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2015.
