TASTING NOTES

History in the bottle – the precursor of Le Pergole Torte and one of the last years Montevertine was still a part of Chianti consortium. Stunning, really. A poster-child of how the terroir, proper philosophy of the owner (Manetti), the genius of the winemaker (Gambelli) and responsible aging can defy time. Not only is it alive, it is arguably right at its prime. Amazing tea, eucalyptus, tobacco and animal notes with traces of that elusive sweet ripe cherry essence. The joy and honor of time travel.
