Description:

Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2006
Tuscany
"The 2006 Le Pergole Torte is utterly spellbinding. It hasn't fleshed out yet like the 2004, but it nevertheless possesses breathtaking inner perfume, great purity in its fruit and fabulous overall balance. Today the tannins remain a touch firm, but the wine's beauty is impossible to miss. True pleasure is still a few years away. I imagine the 2006 will still be fabulous at age 30. The 2006 Pergole Torte is shaping up to be yet another jewel in a long line of stunning wines from Montevertine. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036." A. Galloni for TWA, 98+ pts. 06/12
7 bottles
Estimate $700-975
