Le Pergole Torte Montevertine 2007 (3L)
99 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the unforgettable standouts in this historic retrospective, the 2007 Le Pergole Torte is an astonishing achievement. The wine offers soaring intensity and an enduring sense of balance and power. It has also entered a stunning phase in its lifeline, yet it still possesses that inner energy and youthfulness that ensures an even longer aging trajectory ahead. The bouquet is singular both in terms of its varietal purity and its aromatic reach. In many respects, this wine comes closest to the legendary 1990 Le Pergole Torte Riserva, an edition made only once in Montevertine's history. Indeed, this wine may have an upper leg on that wine given that inner youthfulness I mentioned above. The bouquet emits dark fruit and hints of exotic spice. The mouthfeel shows beautiful texture, fiber and even smoothness." 03/18.
96 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2007 Le Pergole Torte is rich, layered and sensual, all typical of this warm vintage. Bold red-fleshed fruits, spices, mint and rose petals are laced together in an expressive, resonant Pergole Torte built on pure texture. The 2007 is one of the raciest, sexiest Pergole Torte's in the estate's history. It can be enjoyed now or any time over the next 10-15 years. I don't expect to see the 2007 shut down, as it has always been open, rich and voluptuous. The 2007 has always been gorgeous, as it is once again today. Martino Manetti adds that while 2007 was a warm year, conditions never reached the extremes seen in 2003, nor were there any real spikes to speak of. Rather, temperatures were higher than normal over an extended period of time, but then settled back closer to normal in the weeks leading up to harvest." 01/16
93 Points, James Suckling, Wine Spectator: "A wine that needs time to show what it has. Starts off slowly, then develops on the palate. Full and powerful. Like a top Brunello. Sangiovese." 10/10
93 Points, Aldo Fiordelli, Decanter: "In 2007, widely considered a hot vintage, the harvest started early on 1 October. Nevertheless, Le Pergole Torte boasts precise red cherry fruit with a whiff of privet, followed by a smoky woodland depth. The palate is savoury and full, more powerful than elegant, with firm acidity and tannins leading to a slightly thick, dry finish." 07/19
International Wine Cellars
96 Points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(100% Sangiovese; 13% alcohol) Deep, full red. Complex, gorgeous nose melds ripe red cherry, tobacco, iron, cinnamon and a floral element. Suave and bright, but fatter and deeper than the Montevertine, with perfectly integrated acidity to buffer its voluptuous texture and captivating flavors of ripe red cherry, spicy plum, licorice and underbrush. Finishes broad, with compellingly mouthcoating tannins and outstanding length. A great wine and another example of the incredible heights sangiovese can achieve in the right hands and in the right terroirs, such as Radda, where Montevertine is located." 08/10
