Montevertine

Montevertine

Montevertine is situated in the region of Radda, one of Tuscany’s prime areas for producing high-quality Chianti Classico wines. The estate is particularly famous for its commitment to traditional winemaking practices and the production of exceptional Sangiovese-based wines.

It was founded in 1967 by Sergio Manetti, who envisioned crafting wines that reflected the true essence of the Sangiovese grape and the terroir of Radda in Chianti. From the outset, Montevertine aimed to make wines that deviated from the official regulations of Chianti Classico to focus on purity and quality.

The vineyards are planted at relatively high altitudes, contributing to their wines’ freshness and vibrancy. The terroir of Radda in Chianti is characterized by a combination of soil types, including clay, schist, and limestone, which imparts unique characteristics to the grapes grown there.

The primary grape variety cultivated is Sangiovese. This classic Italian grape variety is known for producing wines with bright acidity, rich cherry flavors, and a balanced structure. In addition, they grow small amounts of Canaiolo and Colorino, which are traditional Tuscan red grape varieties.

One of Montevertine’s most famous wines is “Le Pergole Torte.” This wine is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes and is considered one of the top examples of pure Sangiovese expression in Tuscany. It has gained a loyal following among wine enthusiasts and collectors worldwide.

Following Sergio Manetti’s vision, the estate labeled its wines “Vino da Tavola” (Table Wine) rather than seeking the Chianti Classico DOCG status. This decision was to maintain the freedom to experiment and produce wines in their desired style without being bound by strict appellation regulations.
