Not as open knit as some of the commentary on this vintage would have you believe. Fairly tightly wound and austere at this stage, cool blue fruit tones with some barrel notes, built more like a classic brunello than the ethereal grace I was expecting. Not going to crack another for at least 5-8 years

Juicy and sweet fruits, inflected with botrytis, gentle tannins and softer acidity. Quite approachable as such a young wine.

Even in this vintage; it’s excellent. Impressive already and while it’ll never be magnificent, it’s flawless.

The blood lines on this are undeniable but I don’t believe this was ever meant to be consumed this young. No rating.

There’s so much going on here, so intense it’s almost too much (at this stage) - but not quite. Ample red fruit, sweet flowers - it’s rich but still transparent and finishes with bracing acidity.

Stunning aromatics. The palate shows dark cherries, herbs, soft tannins, and a lingering finish. For a weak vintage, this is a winner.

My first try of this wine was the 2015 vintage & I loved it but I’ve not found many 2014 from Italy that I’ve liked as many are weak, so @ £127 I was torn on hold or try & yes I’m so weak to 🤣 I prefer this to the Sassicaia 14 but still I’d pay for the 2015 at this price as it feels expensive for what it is or could be 😉 But hey I love their labels 😍

📍 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2014

🏵 93 points w/ maybe a little improvement but not as complex as the 2015 which I gave 97-98 points @ £135 - I know which I’d buy as a long term treat 😉

🍇 100% Sangiovese

🍷 Clear rich ruby

👃 Soft oak & minty fresh cedar tones through dark cherry & sweet plum w/ blackberry, earth, rock minerals, red potpourri & spiced herby hints

👄 Med body of smooth red cherry, soft dark plum & light blackberry tones in dry minerals w/ raspberry, pomegranate & red berry oozing through

🎯 Med dry mineral infused red fruit wallop w/ a cherry, raspberry & pomegranate linger
