Il Rospo Cabernet Sauvignon

2018

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. From a one-hectare parcel with 20-year-old vines on the original Montesecondo property. Destemmed with part pressed immediately and part macerated for a short 4-6 days; spontaneous fermentation and aging in concrete tank for a year; bottled without fining or flitration and held for six more months before release. “Rospo” is Italian for the “toad” gracing all of the labels.

"The 2018 Il Rospo (Cabernet Sauvignon) is another incredibly distinctive wine in this range from Montesecondo. Grilled herbs, leather, smoke and menthol are all laced into a core of dark plummy fruit. Vinification and aging in cement preserves remarkable purity in the flavors. The 2018 is a joyous, exuberant wine that delivers the goods.-"
