Item Description
Wine Spectator 94

The story of LEGIT Cabernet Sauvignon began in 2016 when Lia was tasting barrels of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon at Tolaini with a colleague from Banville Wine Merchants. 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. LEGIT's striking label is an iconic photo from the album cover of one of Monk's most famous live concert recordings, 'Thelonious Monk in Italy' recorded live April 21st, 1961 in Milan by Riverside Records.
After getting in touch with Thelonious Monk's family to secure the rights to the use of the label, an adventure that was born as a business endeavor evolved into collaboration and has ultimately grown into a wonderful friendship between the Monk and Tolaini family.
We are proud to offer this wine as a tribute to the timelessness of Monk's music. Pulitzer Prize winner,
respected composer (his single "Round Midnight" is the most recorded Jazz single to date) AND who
today is still referred to as the epitome of Jazz, Thelonious Monk has and will always set the bar for all things LEGIT!
About Legit
"Don't play everything, let some things go by. What you don't play can be more important than what you do".

A philosophy of a musician whose enduring legacy continues to inspire listeners, artists and artisans around the world. Music, the language of soul, universally understood and appreciated in spite of borders and barriers. Indeed its rhythm transcends those things and makes our collective hearts to beat as one. We argue that wine has a similar ability. The grapes each a note in a composition written in a universal language. The author, an artisan improvising with practiced deft, not playing everything, letting some things go by. Little wonder then that when Tuscan vintner and international wine importer Lia Tolaini Banville met the grandchildren of the great Thelonious Monk, she was inspired to a collaboration to honor his memory with a singular wine from her family estate - LEGIT.
