    "Le Pergole Torte" Rosso Toscana IGT 2017 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    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

    "The Montevertine 2017 Le Pergole Torte is a dark and sensuous expression with a well-matched "portrait of a lady" by artist Alberto Manfredi depicted on the iconic label of this vintage. Her full, ruby-colored lips speak of the generous and abundant fruit displayed here, and her slanted mascara-lined eyes underline the heat and power of the vintage. The Montevertine school matches the character of a wine to its bottle artwork with unparalleled success. This edition reflects the heat and the dry growing conditions of the vintage, however there is more sweetness and opulent fruit here compared to the Montevertine. It's not that this wine is riper per se, it just tastes more voluptuous and soft. It finishes with elegant tannins and a long, polished mouthfeel." Robert Parker
