Lot #539. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 1988

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Tuscany.
Score: 95 AG.
"200*1.2A great example of the year, the 1988 Le Pergole Torte has it all. Fresh, powerful and vertical in its structure, the 1988 is exceptionally beautiful today. The flavors are dark, bold and vivid, with plenty of dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, licorice and lavender. Dense and powerful, yet with the classic Montevertine sense of mid-weight structure, the 1988 is exceptionally beautiful today. This is an especially beautiful bottle. Martino Manetti recalls that he dragged all of his friends out of school for two days to pick the fruit. Of all the early wines in this tasting, the 1988 is the vintage I would most like to own. The wine's combination of intensity and structure is spellbinding." Vinous, Jan 2016
Notes: Very top shoulder, lightly corroded capsule, lightly bin soiled and very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $425
