Le Pergole Torte 2016
Although it was the contents of the bottle that made it famous, it is undeniable that the artistic Pergole Torte label contributes to its attraction. Since 1982 Alberto Manfredi, a personal friend Sergio Manetti’s, has been drawing the woman’s face that has become the symbol of this wine. The Le Pergole Torte vineyard was planted in 1986, starting with an area of 2 hectares on a north-northeast facing slope. Made entirely from Sangiovese grapes, it is one of the mythical Tuscan wines, offering thrills with every sip.
Elegant wine that is easily recognized by the label, adorned with precious watercolors by Albert Manfredi, different for each year. Beautiful and alluring, the portraye reflects the sophistication of the wine, its value and charm.
