This is no little brother of Le Pergole Torte’s; it is a different, original wine, offering another take on the winery. To tell the truth, it is no less evocative, especially in its best vintages where Montevertine shows its capacity to overturn the company hierarchy. Made from Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino grapes, it is aged for 24 months in oak barrels from Slavonia. It is delicate but bright in colour, with fragrances of violets and cherry, and the mineral hints typically bestowed by the rocky ground of Radda, a truly great Tuscan Grand Cru.
