"Don't play everything, let some things go by. What you don't play can be more important than what you do". -Thelonious Sphere Monk
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.
Thelonious Monk has and will always set the bar for all things LEGIT!
