Description

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019  #26 

Legit is a wine of power and finesse, an organically-farmed Cabernet Sauvignon made from hand-picked grapes grown in the prized San Giovanni Vineyard in the heart of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Here the gently sloping Tuscan vineyard and its gnarled vines mimic the angular melodies and dissonant twists of Monk's great masterpieces. "A wine born of soul and depth", a harmonious and unlikely marriage of American Jazz and Italian tradition that is as perfectly irreverent, as stylishly 'Legit' as the artist who inspired it.

94 Points Wine Spectator - This is broad and incisive, delivering black currant, plum, leather, earth and wild herb flavors. Dense and beefy, yet with ample fruit for balance, driven by vibrant acidity. This is starting to mellow but still has years of life ahead. Drink now through 2036.

91 Points James Suckling - Very perfumed on the nose with dried flowers and blackberries. Hints of wet earth. Medium body, fine and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Remains chilled and fine. The label features jazzman Thelonious Monk, to whom this wine is dedicated. Drink now or hold.
