LEGIT

LEGIT Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT

    • Description :

      Grapes are first selected during harvest in the vineyard and then by an optical sorter when they arrive at the winery; they are destemmed and the whole berries are immediately placed in French oak fermenters. Fermentation is temperature-controlled and the must is kept in contact with the skins for about 30 days. Manual pigeage and remontage are carried out frequently throughout the day, usually every 4-6 hours, and one delestage is performed per week. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barriques (70% new and 30% used one year). The wine rests for 24 months in barriques, of which 6 months are spent resting on the lees.

      Tasting notes :

      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 fruit palate, LEGIT has the potential to age for a long period of time, which is typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the Castelnuovo Berardenga Area.
