Lot #851. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 1998

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Tuscany.
Score: 91 JG.
"The 1998 Pergole Torte is a bit deeper-pitched and more black fruity than the more vibrant and red fruity 1999, but despite its slightly “cooler” profile, this too will be a fine bottle of wine at its apogee. The nose is deep and complex, as it offers up scents of black cherries, plums, a touch of bitter chocolate, herb tones, road tar, damp earth and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite tannic, with fine focus, a solid core of fruit and very good length and grip on the firm, chewy and well-balanced finish. The 1998 does not possess the same generosity of youthful fruit as the 1999 or even the 2001 for that matter, and hence would be a bit more difficult to drink before it reaches full maturity, but with its sound acids and lovely complexity, it will be a delightful drink once it reaches its peak." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Jan/Feb 2010, Issue #25
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: 3 Neck, 5 base neck, 4 very top shoulder, 3 very lightly damp stained, 1 damp stained label.
