LEGIT's Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown in our San Giovanni vineyard in Tuscany's Castelnuovo Berardenga region. This wine was bottled as a single varietal to showcase its unique harmony of distinct terroir, robust bright fruit and lush round tannins. LEGIT has received the coveted honor of being named in Wine Spectator's Top 100 List two years in a row for the 2013 (#26) and the 2016 (#13) vintages.

Lia Tolaini-Banville's collaboration with the Monk family began in 2016 when she was tasting barrels of the 2013 Cabernet with a colleague at Tolaini. They agreed this wine was a LEGIT Cabernet Sauvignon, with a true sense of place and an Italian soul. In wanting to pursue the name LEGIT, only one person came to mind. A person who embodied stylish originality and eternal hipness, an artist referred to as the "Genius of Modern Music" - Thelonious Monk. Thelonious Monk, one of the most LEGIT musicians of our time, was a perfect choice for this label. The photo is from Monk's album cover, recorded at his concert in Milan in 1963.
