Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2009 Le Pergole Torte is flat-out great. Layers of fruit wrap around the palate in this flashy, seductive Pergole Torte. There are no hard edges to be found. Sweet red cherries, roses, spices and mint are layered into the silky, radiant finish. The 2009 is a wine of extraordinary elegance. Today the 2009 comes across as a smaller scaled version of the 2007. This is also the first year of biological farming at Montevertine. Despite the heat wave in August, Martino Manetti waited until October 12 to bring the Sangiovese in. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2039. In a week during which I tasted most of the reference point Sangioveses and Sangiovese-based reds, one wine stuck out - Le Pergole Torte. Quite honestly, I had a hard time getting to sleep the night I tasted these wines. They were that viscerally thrilling. Le Pergole Torte isn’t a great Tuscan or Italian wine. It is simply one of the world’s elite wines.

Deep red. Musky red fruits, smoked meat, aromatic herbs and bitter chocolate on the pure, distinctly Old World nose. Supple, sweet and deep, but with lovely lift and verve to the fine-grained flavors of red berries, truffle and marzipan. Brisk acidity keeps the finish of this full-bodied wine firm and refreshing. The very long finish shows repeating notes of herbs and violet.
