Lot #860. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 1993

Description: Consists of 1 Double Magnum, 3L
Region: Italy, Tuscany.
Score: 94 AG.
"The 1993 Le Pergole Torte is precise, nuanced and focused in the glass, with the brightness of the cold vintage very much on full display. Finely cut throughout, the 1993 is all about nuance. Freshly cut flowers, crushed rocks, mint and rose petals are some of the signatures. Even within the context of Pergole Torte, the 1993 is delicate, understated and restrained throughout, with plenty of support from underlying veins of acidity and tannin. 'At the time, we did pumpovers by hand, and I remember standing above the vats and wearing a jacket,' adds Martino Manetti. The wines may have been slow to evolve, but today, the 1993 is pure class. Although there are many pedigreed wines in the world, some rise above that level and move into the stratosphere of the truly iconic. Montevertine’s Le Pergole Torte is one of those wines because it weaves together so many strands of history and culture. Le Pergole Torte is a wine of tradition and innovation. It is a wine that speaks to the potential of Sangiovese and the unique attributes of Radda. But above all else, Pergole Torte is a reflection of its creator. The late Sergio Manetti was an industrialist, an intellectual and a man of deep culture. His spirit permeates through these wines." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Nov 2015
