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

Ratings & Reviews


95 Points & #13 Top 100 of 2020 - 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)
