Notes from the Winemaker:
The wine has a deep ruby red color. The nose displays hints of green pepper,licorice and graphite melted with oak vanilla flavors. Full bodied with a ripe fruitpalate, LEGIT has the potential to age for a long period of time, which is typical ofthe Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the Castelnuovo Berardenga Area

Grapes are firstly selected during harvest in the vineyard and then by an opticalsorter when they arrive to the winery; they are destemmed and the whole berriesare immediately put into French oak fermenters.Alcoholic fermentationThe temperature is computer controlled, the must is keptin contact with the skins for about 30 days where manual pigeage and remontageare done frequently, throughout the day every 4-6 hours and one delestage is doneper week.Malolactic fermentationFrench oak barriques (70% new and 30% used one)Maturation24 months in barriques, of which 6 months are spent resting on the lees


Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An impressive red of breadth and depth, featuring black cherry, plum, leather, earth, iron and cedar aromas and flavors. This is solidly built and well-balanced, with finely honed tannins and lively acidity providing backbone. Best from 2021 through 2040. 15,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported." - BS (Oct 31, 2020)
