Montevertine is an estate near Radda, right in the heart of the Chianti Classico denomination. They have one of the highest altitude plots. They left the appellation in 1981 as Manetti (who presided over the wines at the time) sought to create wines that were a pure expression of Sangiovese. He did not want to blend it with other varieties as they require for the appellation law. The Pergole Torte vineyard is made up of the oldest vines on the estate.
