      “Pian del Ciampolo” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      Due to the careful maturation in large wood, this wonderful red wine retains its full fruit and presents itself with a lot of juice and power. Cherry notes in the bouquet and on the palate combine with a wonderful herbal spice. Its elegant structure and the wonderful interplay of acidity and tannin ensure a very appealing drinking flow. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From the estate's various vineyards spread throughout the Radda commune, Pian del Ciampolo is fermented in cement with indigenous yeast and ages in Slavonian oak casks. It reveals pretty floral nuances of lilac and cherry blossoms after a rainfall. Hints of forest growth and red plum emerge on the palate. It's soft and polished with a delightful lightness of texture and fine, chalky tannins. This is all sumptuous berries and is irresistible now." Decanter

      "The 2018 Pian del Ciampolo is a glorious wine. The purest essence of Radda emerges in a wine with striking translucence and captivating balance. The 2018 offers notable depth with less opulence and more freshness than the 2017. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint and spice are all finely knit in a wine of extraordinary beauty. Readers who may be new to Montevertine and want to explore the wines should start here. Pian del Ciampolo is a real gem in 2018. It will drink well to age twenty, maybe beyond." Vinous

    • "Montevertine" Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      “Montevertine” Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      Montevertine as the so-called "second wine" of the house proves, like so many of its kind, the true potential of the winery. It possesses an opulence and generosity that is expressed in the bouquet with dark red fruits, some lavender and wonderful spice notes. On the palate, again, a lot of personality, red stone fruit, herbs and some salt. A drop that is hardly inferior to the flagship Le Pergole Torte. SUPERIORE.DE

      The 2017 Montevertine is rich, creamy and beautifully resonant on the palate. Over the last year it seems to have gained an extra bit of freshness, which is of course such a plus in this very hot, dry vintage. Montevertine is often austere, but the 2017 is unusually open today, not to mention incredibly delicious. There is plenty of tannin beneath all of that vintage 2017 fruit. Even so, opening a bottle young is not a crime by any stretch of the imagination. Black cherry, leather, sweet pipe tobacco, licorice and earthy notes develop with aeration, showing just a glimpse of what is in store for those who can wait. The 2017 is a striking wine in every sense. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding further dimensions that will continue to unfold over the coming years." Vinous

    • "Le Pergole Torte" Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      “Le Pergole Torte” Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      One of the best pure Sangiovese from 30-50 year old vines. The labels change every year and are the work of the artist Amberto Manfredi. In the nose violets, raspberries and some cinnamon, on the palate this red wine pampers with an opulent fruit and a typical play of acids. An intense, warm wine that is never fat or filling, but which reveals a new subtle facet of its strong personality with every sip. A great wine with great ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rather than a single vineyard, this is a selection of the estate’s oldest Sangiovese vines. It includes the original Le Pergole Torte vineyard which was established by founder Sergio Manetti in 1967, as well as vines planted prior to 1999. Black tea, allspice and woodland berries lead on the nose, while the palate is dominated by a minerally, stony grip. Tangy acidity, powdery tannins and subtle, harmonised wood are precisely balanced in this sophisticated wine which allies elegance with power." Decanter

      "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." Vinous

    About the winemakers
    Montevertine
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Montevertine

    If today a wine lover has a bottle of Le Pergole Torte with the characteristic artist's label in front of him, it is hard to believe that fifty years ago this famous winery was only the holiday home of an Italian industrialist who wanted to produce a few bottles of wine for friends as a hobby. And even more incredible is that he just wanted to know if he was okay and sent a few bottles to the Vinitaly in Verona, which were served there by the Chamber of Commerce Siena. It tasted so good even then, because the popularity was enormous and tempted Sergio Manetti to quit his highly paid job and become a winemaker. The rest is an incomparable success story. Today the wines of Montevertine are among the absolute top wines of Italy.

    The vineyard is still comparatively small with its 18 hectares. Only three wines are produced from only three grape varieties. Sangiovese dominates with 90%, Colorino and Canaiolo are added. No international grape varieties, although Montevertine and Le Pergole Torte are often referred to as "Supertuscans". The third is called Pian Del Ciampolo and, according to Martino Manetti, the son of the company founder, who died in 2000, is virtually a second wine in the sense of the Bordeaux classification. In addition to the three wines, an exquisite olive oil is pressed in very small quantities and a fine grappa is distilled from the Sangiovese grape marc.

    Nine vineyards, all located at about 450 m above sea level near the dense forests above Radda in Chianti. This small region is often described as one of the best in the Chianti-Classico area. The nearby forests and the mountains behind create a cooler climate, especially at night. A lot of wind blows the fog out of the vineyards early and dries the grapes well. The soils are stony and calcareous, which often gives Sangiovese its more filigree and elegant wines. Until 1997 about 3,200 vines per hectare were planted in Guyot education, the newer vineyards became denser, with up to 5,000 plants and are cultivated in the Italian Cordone Speronato education. Since 2009 we have been working strictly organically, fertilizing with our own compost and fighting the wine diseases with the minimum of copper and sulphur.

    In the cellar "very traditional, but with modern equipment" is used. The hand-picked grapes are macerated for about a month in concrete tanks without temperature control and then aged for one to two years in large Slavonian oak barrels. Only the pure Sangiovese Le Pergole cake is put into French barriques for a year and then into the large barrels for another year. Martino Manetti, with the help of his oenologists Bruno Bini and Paolo Salvi, continues his father's unmistakable, idiosyncratic traditional style. Very gratifying. The international wine critics, who rave every year and award the highest distinctions, naturally also find this. We are convinced that you will also be enthusiastic, especially if you give the wines some time after opening. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Since then, the wines of the house have become showpieces for the whole region and provide a Sangiovese that is hardly more complete in Tuscany. Unmistakable in style, original and well-balanced, Montevertine wines have earned an absolute top position in the national wine league."Gambero Rosso
