The concentration of this Tuscan Cabernet shows great purity of fruit. A warming wine for colder months. Silvio Messana has been working to showcase the refined character of his Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and his 2018 IGT "ll Rospo" is his finest expression to date.
"The 2018 Il Rospo 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 ageing in cement preserves remarkable purity in the flavours. The 2018 is a joyous, exuberant wine that delivers the goods." Antonio Galloni Vinous.com
