Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2013
98 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2016
Perhaps no Tuscan wine is a better vintage ambassador than the Montevertine 2013 Le Pergole Torte. This gorgeous wine seems to have captured the energy, the freshness, the spirt and the edginess of this classic vintage. It really speaks to my palate thanks to its silky consistency, its steady aromatic momentum and its understated elegance. The wine shows an uncanny level of the proverbial Tuscan nobility. The bouquet offers a delicate embroidery of wild berry and underbrush, with lingering tones of dark fruit and spice that appear on second nose. The mouthfeel is ethereal and polished with tannins that already show a superior level of integration despite the wine's young age. The aging future looks very bright for the 2013 Le Pergole Torte.
The 2013 Le Pergole Torte is one of the finest releases from Montevertine in recent memory. Martino Manetti is another vintner who has clearly benefited from past experience, and from pure vision and talent, to produce a flagship wine in 2013. - Monica Larner
