    Radda

Sergio Manetti founded Montevertine in 1967 when Radda, one of the highest and rockiest sites of Chianti Classico was considered one of the trickiest places to ripen grapes. Today, it offers one of the longest growing seasons of the region.

Tasting Notes

Le Pergole Torte is magnificent, just as it was last year. Rich, dense and explosive, with stunning depth and texture, off the charts intensity while remaining light on its feet for such rich a powerful, layered wine. Smooth tannins, black cherry, plum, lavender, menthol, spice and new leather all meld together seamlessly. 

Method

Manetti bypassed the traditional Chianti recipe, however, which at the time demanded the use of white grapes in the blend.  He created Le Pergole Torte from 100% Sangiovese, which lays claim to being one of the first Super Tuscans.
