Ho avuto la fortuna di aprire di nuovo una bottiglia di questa meraviglia. Conferma pienamente le impressioni annotate a suo tempo: un'eleganza ed un equilibrio straordinari; naso sontuoso: inizialmente terziario con muschio e funghi, e una nota fumé. Poi balsamico e speziato, e infine escono confettura di frutti di bosco, prugna, viola, cuoio, tabacco. Al palato equilibrato conferma l'eleganza, una buona struttura, con tannini finissimi ed evoluti, e un'acidità che gli dona grande bevibilitá. Splendido finale lungo.

PnP and drank over a couple hours. Drinking better than I hoped but still miles to go. This has wonderful balance with the purest of sangiovese flavors. This is much more interesting and more complex than most Chiantis. Already expansive with weightless power of expression. Young and still a couple ticks away from being really impressive. Just needs time to really rock. Unfortunately, with the price jump I only grabbed one at $50. Not the no brainer value it used to be at $35-$40 but, worth its $50 price tag. I may still grab a couple more to age out. Had a left over glass and 2 hours later, this is better still. Tannins have softened and the wine has fleshed out more. 92+ now.... So, probably a good idea to give this a decant.

with 30 to 60 mins of air this is such a wonderfully developed wine, soft and great fruit, some sweetness from white grapes. One of the best overall values from Tuscany, excellent seemingly every year.

Translucent ruby. A more serious wine than i anticipated, albeit on a medium-bodied and elegant frame. Decanted and followed for 3 hours, and i do agree with others that this probably needs 3-5 more years to really shine. Quite impressive despite its humbe price tag. Red cherry,spice, leather, dusty and gravelly on the nose. Sharp and pitched on the palate with savoury red fruited notes displying very pure radiant fruit, very classic and traditional sangiovese. Could have fooled me as a brunello

Lys transparent rød farge. I nesen merkes aldringspreget i form av lær skogbunn og fioler. Noe kirsebær, granateple og sobert treverk kommer også frem. Kompleks! Minner også denne gangen mye om Burgund, en herlig eleganse. I munnen er det lyse røde bær, fruktig og kjølig. Likevel merkes en svak sødme i fruktbildet som gjerne kommer frem med lagring. Innsmigrende. Bra syre som sørger for friskhet. I utgangspunktet er ikke dette en vin for lagring, introvinen hos produsenten. Likevel er dette en strålende moden Sangiovese! Drikk nå - 2019. Forresten ypperlig til risotto med steinsopp og ytrefilet av dåhjort.

Again much let down by the wine. I think this is all because this 2007 vintage with awful ripening time full of rain and bad weather. I had the impression that the fruit has gone in this wine leaving just correct tannins and acidity. Very shallow both on the nose and on the palate, like someone would have added some water. I have some 2010 bottles left, we'll see how they would occur.

This needs more time, but has outstanding potential. Initial pour shows really dark fruit with sweet cassis, black raspberry, and some floral hints. With air and a bit of warming it becomes more classic Sangiovese with rose petal, tar, and black cherry. The fruit remains a little darker than the regular Montevertine and there is definitely more depth and development potential. I think this wine is fantastic, but currently needs at least 4-5 more years and will probably be peaking in 8-10.

Crumbling cork. No seepage. Tasted over 3h.
Youthful colour; understated, elegant and austere flavour profile. Cherry and spice, smooth textured, good length.
A bit beguiling.

Decant and drink or hold until 2025.
12.5% abv

This had a nice full-bodied flavor. Good raspberry flavor, tannins were at a nice level. I've had chianti that's just as good for 1/4 the price, but this was also good.

Dark red color. Drank 1 glass over 15 minutes. This was very good, earthy, black raspberry, anise on the nose. The palate shows kirsch, licorice, raspberry liqueur, medium full body, fine tannins, spice.

Decanted for 3 hours. The nose had some bright cranberries and cinnamon. It's a medium body wine. The palate was round and smooth but it did not have the depth and complexity. I do not think the wine is too young to drink now. It's actually in a good drinking window. 2 hours of decanting is optimal.

Shows Bordeaux-like complexity and density with lovely notes of earthy black fruits, warm spices and smoky minerals. Balanced and nuanced and very drinkable now.

Heavily perfumed and intoxicating nose! This wine got better and better over the years. Sadly this was my last bottle. And it was the best. Complex, integrated and perfectly fitting the Spaghetti Puttanesca I enjoyed at home while watching Bayern against Port CL game.

Considering the brown edges I don't this this wine will evolve further. Drink until 2016.

I was surprised at how drinkable this was, young and energetic but not as heavy or as closed as I anticipated; and it continued to drink well for several days, without showing a trace of sourness or losing its fruit to tannins.

Rated 1 on a scale of -1 to 3.

Ero molto titubante ad aprire ora questo vino visto le cose che si leggono in rete. C'è chi dice che è cotto e bisogna aprirlo, subito, c'è chi dice che per apprezzarlo almeno altri 10 anni, c'è chi dice che non è più il pergole torte degli anni '80 e '90.
Beh, è 3 anni che l'avevo in cantinetta, e mi sono fatto coraggio.
Annusando il tappo appena aperto, si percepiva un buon odore di fumo.
Il naso era timido e leggermente alcolico.
In bocca mi ha veramente stupito: tannini finissimi, elegante, composto, con già una percezione di cioccolato. Dopo 2 ore però ha perso un pizzico di compostezza, ma aromi e profumi si sono allargati sempre mantenendo un eleganza straordinaria che ritrovo sempre nei pergole torte assaggiati fino adesso. Buono, molto buono, e come al solito troppo poco. A memoria non così buono come il 2001 e il 2004 ma non mi ci ritrovo con gli ultimi bassi punteggi letti ultimamente su questo sito. Questo vino è sempre uno dei migliori sangiovese che io ricordi.
Su quando sarebbe stato l'anno migliore per aprirlo sono un po' in difficoltà. Ho la sensazione che questa annata non abbia una grande longevità. Io l'ho trovato pronto ora, e sinceramente a lasciarlo lì altri 5 anni non so se ritroverei la stessa compostezza ed equilibrio trovato oggi.

Really enjoyed this. Very silky texture, very smooth on the palate, and notable freshness. Berry fruit on the palate is pure and fresh and nicely balanced. Young, but open and drinking well. At Neil's.

Nice wine. Perhaps a touch bloody tasting for my taste... Wish it were maybe a touch more elegant and showed a bit more finesse. I don't mean finessed as in glib. Just a bit more... Burgundian, perhaps? Still, a lovely wine. With a lovely inner mouth florals, but tied to sort of an iron, blood, and balsamic palate. Not balsamic in the sweet sense, but balsamic in that sort of heady reduced grape must sense.

Lovey cherry fruit that already shows hints of leathery earthiness, very silky in texture and feels very well balanced. The wine is nicely structured, graceful, and poised and opened nicely over four hours. Maybe not the most powerful or explosively complex version of Montevertine that I've tasted, but seems worthy of a spot in the cellar if you like this wine.
