Why We're Buying
Montevertine Le Pergole Torte Toscana IGT is a modern classic. The popular Tuscan wine is the crown jewel of the Montevertine portfolio, which strives to bring its terroir to life through sangiovese grapes. Investors who held this coveted wine nearly saw the price double from 2017 to 2021.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Le Pergole Torte was born in a hot vintage, borderline too hot. On the one hand, you could deduct that the wine's performance is less nuanced and profound as a result. You might also want to consider a shorter drinking window. On the other hand, however, this warm-vintage expression of Sangiovese, from the cooler Radda in Chianti subzone, possesses gorgeous intensity and a super attractive, fruit-driven flavor profile. You get so much more exuberance and texture here. The bouquet offers dark fruit aromas backed by scorched earth, cured tobacco and a touch of savory black truffle. It's simply delicious right now.
