About the Piece
This image is a visual representation of Le Pergole Torte, the brainchild of the cerebral Sergio Manetti, which stands alone for its visionary redefinition of what could be achieved with Sangiovese in the Chianti hills. The image shows the wine's return to classical form, with a wispy, shimmering texture woven around an elusive framework of aromas: sometimes floral and bright-fruited, next earthy and rich, then spicy and medicinal. Each layer emerges, half-seen, almost sharpening into focus before washing away again, finally coalescing into an unrelenting tannic grasp.
About Sarah Heller
Sarah Heller is an artist of mixed Asian and European descent living and working in Hong Kong. Drawing on her background as a Master of Wine, her work attempts to capture the subjective experience of tasting wine and explores the synthetic work of imagination required to recreate and share that experience. Her series titled Visual Tasting Notes focuses on individual wines and the pieces are meant to be read narratively from top to bottom, tracing the wine from initial impression to final aftertaste. Each one is a collage of hand painted, digitally painted and photographic fragments.
